Artist Biography:
I first started playing music in a school rock band called Rubber Duck in the mid 1960s. 

When I moved to Milton Keynes in 1973 I help formed the band Hemlock playing folk clubs and festivals in the UK and touring France, the band subsequently became Cock and Bull and were one of the most popular bands on the dance circuit. 

After leaving Cock and Bull, I joined  Stony Stratford Morris as a dancer and musician, playing dubious melodeon. It was at this time, with Stony Morris that I first performed in the theatre in Days Of Pride, a documentary musical play. Since then, I've performed in several of Stantonbury Theatre’s documentary dramas, plus many other plays.

In 1996, I won a Sony International Radio Award for my one-man show, "I'll Tell You What Happened", based on the reminiscences of Hawtin Mundy. This show was toured nationwide including the Edinburgh Festival and received a very favourable review in The Scotsman. After this I toured the show, "A Glance From A Train", with Eric Thompson, A show telling the story of the coming of the railway to sleepy North Buckinghamshire village and it's subsequent effect on the people who lived and worked there.
At present I'm still doing solo work and also playing in Kobold, a local 3 piece acoustic band with Godfrey Yeomans and Dave Crawford, and also playing occasionally with The Living Archive Band .
To earn a living I work at the very special Redway School in Milton Keynes, please visit their web site to see the fantastic work they do there!
