Second time around
Despite the late start, I have enjoyed an exciting musical career, spanning 3 continents. My pipe organ performances have taken me across Europe (including the fine instruments maintained by the Netherland Organ Federation), and in the UK highlights have been performing at Bristol’s Colston Hall, the Croydon Fairfield Halls, Birmingham Town Hall and a plethora of lovely churches. I have also given theatre organ concerts on some wonderful organs, including Stockport Town Hall ‘Queen’ Wurlitzer, the Barry Christie, the Bournemouth Compton, the Woking Wurlitzer, and the Wurlitzer in the Tower Ballroom at Blackpool.
My passion for the keyboard orchestra – a synth in the layout of an organ – has satisfied my ambition to play every instrument in the orchestra and to be a conductor. I have loved sharing music with audiences countrywide, including Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre, Birmingham Town Hall, Wolverhampton Civic Hall, The Bonington Theatre Nottingham, The Regis Theatre, and countless music festivals and clubs.
Having previously owned some incredibly heavy ‘transportable’ instruments, I am now the proud owner of a Yamaha ELC-02, which I have named my “Travelling Light Orchestra”. One of very few such instruments in the UK, it offers an impressive array of performance and sound-creating opportunities, whilst being completely portable.
