Welcome to

Hi, everyone, and, whatever your politics, I hope you’ve survived the UK’s election madness.


After a stellar – and I must confess, exhausting - year of gigs and travelling and studio work and production and writing, my wife Jacqueline and I are now settling in for Christmas and Hogmanay. I’m sure it’s the same for most gigging musicians - the only time of the year you get to reconnect with your base, to see old friends, and to rediscover - however briefly - life away from a van full of instruments, motorway services, ferries and airports. I know I’ll be itching to get back to it come January - first job, a Burns Supper in Denmark – but in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy some time to ourselves. My last duty of 2019 will be an edition of my newsletter, so if anyone reading this would like to sign up, please do so.


I hope you’ll achieve whatever kind of relaxation brings you back on an even keel, ready for the rigours of 2020. I’ll be thinking of you all when I crack open the port.

                All the best to you and yours,
