I've been a professional musician since 1971 playing piano, organ and keyboards. I'm married to Elspeth who is a professional singer and we often work together on concerts, religious services and we have done TV work.
I've included a link to my website which gives all the key information about myself and Elspeth plus sound clips. Here's some additional information:- EQUIPMENT - I use a Korg PA5X 88 keyboard. This is linked to 2 Yamaha DXR8 Mkll powered speakers plus Roland PK5 midi pedals. I also have a second set up featuring a Yamaha Genos keyboard and a Casio Previa digital piano.As a full member of Equity I carry public liability insurance
I currently have two CDs "Light & Shade" and "The Lockdown Recordings" which as the title suggests are tracks I made to occupy myself during the first eighteen months of the Covid pandemic. I sell these at my concerts or by mail order, if you'd like one they are £6 inc P+P. Just contact me and I'll send one (or two). I've also been included in Community Keyboards which is presented by Ian Woolstenholme on Oldham Community Radio 99.7FM or online at www.communitykeyboards
My composition "Britannia'" is currently used in the TV advertisment for Memoria Ltd
I'm more than happy to step in at very short notice (even the same day if time permits). You may find this useful in cases of cancellation due to illness or whatever.
Here's part of an email from Mick and Carol who run Briston Organ Shows in Norfolk:
First of all, thank you for the most brilliant show last night - your choice of music was just perfect (as a lot of the audience also told us as they went happily on their way home last night) and it was played beautifully - and Elspeth's singing was the absolute icing on the cake - what a wonderful show it was all round. We will certainly be having you both back in the near future.
My future engagmnents are listed below.
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you'd like to discuss anything.
