ALL KINDS OF MUSIC
From my main current musical endeavours with the Irish pub band kiss the blarney and the traditional barn dance and ceilidh Lifeboat Band all the way back to the start of the whole thing singing solo round the folk clubs with a guitar, via the odd sidestep into cajun with Sack the Fiddler, zydeco with Swamp Fever and a whole stack of dance bands from the original Fiddle Band and the much celebrated Titanic Disaster Band...
At the moment, I call traditional country dances for my own band, the Lifeboat Band, and a number of barn dance and ceilidh bands, mostly round Cheshire - the usual suspects being Chris Perry's Peakfolk, the Northwich based band Madcap and Chester band Three Point Turn. But I turn up every now and then in unexpected places, depending on who phones me up and when.
Most weekends I'm out with kiss the blarney. playing fiddle, mandolin, sax, melodeon and flute (plus a bit of guitar and the odd song) - all the old Irish chorus songs and some of the cracking new songs that have started appearing from bands such as the Waterboys and the Saw Doctors. And one or two of mine. The first CD comes out something later this year (which, in case I never get round to updating the site again, is 2009!).
