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!
In 2002 I started a concert series called Music in the Village in Walthamstow, London E17. Last year, 2022, we celebrated our 20th season!
I still play for St James' Baroque - violone and violone grosso, sometimes a large bass violin.
Here are London Viols, returning from playing in Mallorca.
Wednesday March 2nd
