I’m an acoustic guitarist and tenor banjo player from Beeston, near Nottingham. I arrange and play traditional celtic tunes on guitar, especially the compositions of legendary Irish harpist and composer Turlough O’Carolan.
My music is suited to intimate and quiet spaces and events and I’m always on the look out for interesting venues to play.
You can also hear me with the Phil Langran Band, the Beeston Ceilidh Collective, covers band Goose McCoy, and at various traditional sessions and clubs around the area.
My album The Fortune Teller is available as a digital download on Bandcamp here. or you can order a CD copy by contacting me. You can also listen to some recordings on Soundcloud:
I often play the Carolan Guitar a unique handmade instrument that uses digital technologies to tell stories of how it was made, where it has been and who has played it. Carolan was developed as a research project at the University of Nottingham where I am also a Professor in the Mixed Reality Lab. You can read all about it and it’s life story at the guitar’s own blog.
