Obviously the current COVID-19 situation means that all live performances and workshops are cancelled for the foreseeable future. But I've got lots of ideas for things I can offer while activities are restricted.

  • I teach the English concertina over Skype and Zoom - contact me if you're interested in a lesson
  • I am setting up a Patreon page where I'll offer video tutorials, tune explorations and more
  • I'm available for remote sessions, mixing & editing 
  • I'm happy to consider tune commissions, ideas for videos and so on - get in touch!

And I've got plenty of music available for download and mail order - everything's in stock and will be sent out promptly.

Meanders

This is my solo CD Meanders, recorded over two days last year.  11 tracks of self-composed and traditional tunes, with photography by Camilla Greenwell and an all-cardboard Digifile designed by Robin Beatty.  I'm really happy with it and delighted to have finally done it! Listen to a preview track and order now!

The Servants' Ball

Inspired by a set list from Scan Tester's Country Dance Band, this new CD of music, song and step dancing is a contemporary take on the music that was played by dance bands in the 1920s & 30s. Ewan Wardrop (vocals, ukulele, step dance), Rob Harbron (concertina), Ben Paley (fiddle), Ben Nicholls (double bass), Julian Hinton (piano), Evan Jenkins (drums)  Order now or listen to a preview track
