Happy to announce that this year's Summer School is now open for applications. Taking place in the inspiring surroundings of Ruskin Mill, it's open to instrumentalists who are happy working by ear and keen to develop their own personal styles of playing. Over the years a lot of musicians have taking part in the summer and a lot of tunes have been written in that valley! If you're interested in bring part of this year's group, full info and application forms are on the Summer School page.
This is my solo CD Meanders, recorded over two days last year. 11 tracks of self-composed and traditional tunes, with photography by Camilla Greenwell and an all-cardboard Digifile designed by Robin Beatty. I'm really happy with it and delighted to have finally done it! Listen to a preview track and order now!
