I specialise in Old Time music hall as this area of entertainment seems to have had a revival over recent years. typically playing Victorian ballads or classical music interspersed with some musical saw fun and humour.
The act can be adapted for variety shows, for concert items as background music for Weddings, lunches and conferences.
I have performed with brass bands, orchestras and rock bands around the UK and recorded tracks for film, TV and USA singers.
I also provide musical saw workshops and lessons and have taken part in folk festivals, music festivals and children's festivals ... across the UK ( BeeFest (Lake District), Just So (Cheshire), Broadstairs, Bambury Folk Festivals and the Magic Loungeabout in Skipton.
I studied music at University playing Violin, Tuba, but have played the musical saw since I was 10. I conduct two Yorkshire Brass Bands and play for a Championship band.
I have performed on the musical saw in some of the largest theatres in the UK that include The Empire at Liverpool, the Lowry in Manchester, Leeds Town Hall, Leeds City Varieties, Harrogate Royal Hall and Conference centre. I have played at conferences in Harrogate, Sheffield and hotels around the UK. More information about my events can be found on my site.
I have been performing around the UK on the musical saw for the last 30 years and teaching and conducting musical groups for the last 20 years.
