Folk music

Singer, musician, songwriter 

I have played in folk clubs as a happy amateur since I was a teenager, both solo and in bands.  I mainly sing traditional ballads but also write a few songs myself.

Recently, I have been playing alongside violinist Dave Allison, and our first album, "Ballads" was released in 2023.

Here is one of the tracks from the album, our take on Matty Groves, which is a version of the "The Tale of Lady Barnard and Little Musgrave," a Child ballad (Child 81.)

The album is available on CD and available for download.  Please contact me at if you want a copy.

I'm also available for booking for folk clubs and festivals, either solo or, if available, with Dave Allison.

I help run Epworth Folk and Acoustic Music Club most Monday nights at The Red Lion, Epworth, North Lincs UK and I'm also one of the organisers for Doncaster Roots Music Club, where we book professional acts on tour and Dave and I often play as a support act.
