In 2002 I started a concert series called Music in the Village in Walthamstow, London E17. This year, 2024, is our 22nd season!

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 for over 20 years.            Be careful what you volunteer for! 

One of SJB's fine trumpet players, Richard Thomas, has taken the band over -

I still play for St James' Baroque - violone, violone grosso and sometimes, bass viol.
