Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Played all sorts over the years from solo Folk club gigs to a nice duo for about 10 years in the 80s/90s, with a hot bluegrass banjo player (Ian Sharp).
Retired from playing full time in 95 and got a day job - started playing again a couple of years ago and have become obsessed with fiddle tunes - play every day now. Other interests - mad on motorbikes - Triumph Bonneville and BMW r80 st
I host a monthly Americana night in Harrogate at the Knox Arms, Bilton. Our next meet is 03 July. If you are interested in coming down sometime, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
