I sing songs from the 1920's/30's and play Ukulele, Tenor Banjo and Plectrum Guitar. I live and travel aboard a traditional narrowboat on the Kennet and Avon canal.

Over the last 30 years I have performed solo, in many bands, started the first wooden ukulele club in the UK, co-hosted the Ukecast podcast and written books on teaching ukulele in schools.

Today I play rhythm guitar/ukulele with gypsy jazz band 'The Water Gypsies' and tenor banjo/ukulele with vintage Jazz and Blues skiffle troubadours 'Devil's Doorbell'. We have appeared on BBC radio as well as performing at The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival, Upton Jazz festival and Birmingham Jazz festival.
