I've been playing the East Cleveland Folk Scene since moving here in the early seventies, when I was a regular at several clubs including the Cutty Wren at the Royal in Redcar, featuring on the LP recorded live at the club. I've been guest at clubs throughout the region and further afield both as a solo performer and as a member of several groups including Willard’s Leap, GRUFF with Steve Graham, Front Row with Margaret Williams and Geoff Moulder, and in a duo with Len Porter.
I've played concert spots at Redcar, Saltburn and Sedgefield festival as well as taking part in the musical drama She's Fired. I've been a regular at Guisborough for more years than I care to remember. Musically, I started in the sixties like many, with Dylan and Cohen, before discovering local folk music and traditionally influenced songwriters such as Jez Lowe, Steve Tilston and Dougie Mclean.
I like to play a mixture of serious, amusing and entertaining material that's varied and suited to audience participation.
