I’ve been around a bit, musically and physically. My family roots are in the Isle of Man, where I have lived for the past 40 or so years.
I have played in folk clubs in the 70’s, my brother’s punk band in the late 70’s, traditional music sessions from the early 1980’s and various rock/folk-rock bands since that time, so I’ve had a wide experience of different musical influences.
Sessions are what I now do musically, and prefer an instrumental session centred around Irish/Scottish/Manx dance tunes and airs. Other tunes types of music and songs are okay and I try to keep in mind that the session was born out of the informal entertainment in people’s houses and public houses and that everyone should have a chance to have a go.
