Live gigs and online music


Until the Covid lockdown I'd been running ‘Acoustic Mondays’, at the Windmill Inn in Wymeswold, Leicestershire, and also gigging regularly at venues around Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, both as a solo artist and with folk/acoustic bands. During the pandemic I kept the music going in various places online. These include Facebook pages where I posted videos regularly, such as "The Naughty Chair", "Folk in Quorn" and "Black Horse Fridays"; and also "live" digital acoustic sessions "Backporch Music" and "Juke Joint Jammers" and "Songwriters' Tuesdays". As a result of the pandemic I also developed a bit of an online presence on mainline streaming platforms. They need a bit of updating (soon, I promise!) but you can check out some of my music and my collaborations at:




The other thing that came out of the pandemic was a new collaboration with a group of songwriters - Chris Chambers, Phil Riley, Dave Taylor and Kenny Wilson - in a venture which goes under the name of Reynard Collective. There are links to some of the Reynard tracks below, and you can find more on the main Reynard Collective website at

LIVE GIGS - more recently

In 2021 I moved to Bristol, and I am now beginning to perform more frequently in the South-west, both solo and in collaboration. I have gigged with some brilliant Bristolian musicians, such as Roland Clare, Jacob Cunningham, Andy Allan, Dave Rowlands, Rob Winder - and many others. I have also continued to gig in the Midlands area, both solo and with Reynard Collective. In the list below, which gives the flavour of some of my favourite venues, Reynard Collective gigs are marked (RC); solo concerts, and those involving other collaborations are marked with an (S).

If you fancy booking me or Reynard Collective for a gig, do get in touch at . Fees, in both cases, are by negotiation, depending on the type of gig and the finances of the promoter (we know that times are hard!) Don't be afraid to ask!


I will be glad to hear from you about music or any other projects!
