Musical instrument maker by training (stringed, mainly fretted), telecoms engineer by necessity! Took ITM lessons (whistle and fiddle) with Michael and Joe Searson in Walthamstow, London, as a youngster but gave it up after a few years. Came back to it when I made a tenor banjo for someone and thought I’d better learn to knock out a few tunes to ensure it played well! Made myself a tenor banjo and love it, trying to get to grips with trebles and triplets! Back with the fiddle now, trying to get to grips with a whole new set of trebles and triplets!
