Thanks to everyone who came to my first online English concertina workshop recently, where I discussed my approach to creating solo arrangements of tunes. Don't worry if you missed it - I've made the video available for indefinite access on my teaching page. I'm planning more workshop in the months to come so if you're interested, please join my mailing list or let me know if there are any specific topics you'd like me to cover.
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!
