Show Description

I will take you on an intriguing excursion through popular music; From the intricacies of Bach to the drama of Beethoven; From the delights of the Victorian Music Hall to the ragtime of Scott Joplin; From the Roaring Twenties to Rock 'n Roll; From nostalgic rock of the 60's to Glam Rock of the 80's.

Biography

I'm an accomplished piano entertainer with over 35 years' wide-ranging performing experience both in the UK and abroad.
Throughout that time I have performed as a solo artist (piano & vocals) and in various bands of different genres including Jazz, Blues, Rock and Folk.
Although I was classically trained I realised at an early age that my talents should not be limited simply to classical music. Hence, I have broadened my repertoire to include just about anything anyone asks. So yes, if you can hum it I may well be able to play it...!
