Welcome to my website!
I play a variety of different bass (and double bass) string instruments.

In 2002 I started a concert series in Walthamstow, London E17 - Music in the Village.
On my 'LECTURES' page you can find a concise note for composers who are writing new music for period instruments.
For St James' Baroque I play violone and violone grosso, and sometimes large bass violin.
Here are London Viols, returning from playing in Mallorca, in 2018
For twenty four years, I was the bass player for the English Concert. In 2003 I volunteered myself to manage St. James' Baroque and ended up running it ever since. Be careful what you volunteer for!
