I was born in the Netherlands and started playing the trombone and harmonica when I was nine years old. Later I played tenor & alto saxophone, mostly playing classical music in several orchestras and touring through Europe. I emigrated to New Zealand in 1980 and played the clarinet for about ten years.
In 2010 I picked up a cheap penny whistle and after learning a few tunes I fell in love with Irish music.
Now you will find me most Wednesday nights with a set of harmonicas and whistles at The Rose & Shamrock Irish pub in Havelock North, New Zealand.
During Covid, a few of us, playing instruments made a recording, each in their own “Bubble” which I put together and can be watched here:
