I regularly perform across a wide range of styles and with a variety of fellow musicians, mainly in the north of England. I mainly play violin and piano, and I've appeared at many festivals including Wigan, Southport and Manchester jazz festivals, Cambridge, Morecambe and Presteigne world music festivals, Manchester International Festival and Experyment Festival (Poland).
Current projects I'm involved with include Sonorous Quartet and Petrus (jazz), St Helens Sinfonietta and Woodside String Quartet (mainly classical), Mindset Ensemble (contemporary concert music), Jazz Flute Big Band (of which I am Musical Director) and The Tafts (contemporary folk).
My latest jazz project is Trio Nay, in which I play piano with Naomi Webber (voice) and Lee Webber (double bass). While we develop our web presence please go to our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/trionay
We have an EP available as a CD and digitally (via https://trionay.bandcamp.com/album/trio-nay-friends), and some demo recordings can be heard at: www.soundcloud.com/trionayuk
A new project is the formation of an organisation (with Mike Smith and Miranda Rimmer) to promote and present jazz in Southport. This is called Southport Jazz Club, putting on regular jazz events in the town, starting with monthly gigs at the Atkinson Bakery from autumn 2016.
