New EP - A Week in June 

I'm delighted to release this new EP of original instrumental tracks.  I recorded it in June 2022 as an exclusive for the Hudson Records subscriber club, taking the opportunity to set aside a week to focus on creating new music and attempting to compose and record a new track each day.  It was a hugely enjoyable process and I'm delighted with how it came out.  The tunes are reflections on the shifting season and the bittersweet undertones of midsummer, and my other EP As the Days Begin to Lengthen, written and recorded during January 2023, was actually a response to the June EP which came first.

Available for download from the Music page or my Bandcamp site - this one is only available for download and not on streaming so if you like it please tell your friends!

I'm delighted to announce that my new English Concertina - Beginner video tuition series is now available on The Folk Music Academy.  The course includes thirteen tuition videos featuring instrument basics, technique and traditional tunes, and there's also a performance video.  I really enjoyed making this and it's a great learning tool as of course you can stop and repeat the videos as often as you want and play along.

New EP - As The Days Begin to Lengthen 

I'm delighted to release this five-track EP of instrumentals inspired by the lengthening days of January.  Over a week of January last year I wrote and recorded a tune each day, layering up concertina, mandolin and guitar and exploring some different time signatures and structures, and it was initially released for the Hudson Records subscriber club.  I'm delighted to be releasing it more widely now, in the season that inspired it. 

You can download it now from the Music page or get it in your choice of format from my Bandcamp page.  There's a digital booklet with track notes that also features a few of my photographs.  It will also be on streaming from Jan 22nd but please be aware that even if you pay for a streaming subscription, the amount small artists receive for each stream is fractions of a penny. 

Leveret Tour April 2024 

Leveret are out on the road in April and we're looking forward to visiting some new venues for us, including a couple of gigs in Wales and also the amazing acoustic of Holy Trinity Church, Nailsea.  We're also delighted to be back at Reeth and at South Street, and we're rounding things off at Lansdown in Stroud. Ticket links on the gigs page or visit for more info.


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!
