Asturian living in Glasgow.

I spend most of my time building software for aliving, so music is a brilliant way to finish a long day and it makes me forget about absolutely everything else for a good few hours.

Trained in classical piano from a very early age. I quit when I was 16 and had no relationship with music until 2 years ago, when I started playing the whistle and the accordion. Now in my early 30s, I’m loving music again, I’m a member of GFW where I’ve learnt a lot and met loads of lovely people, who also happen to be great musicians.

Thanks to a good friend who’s a fantastic flute player I’ve now taken up the flute. The embouchure is the devils work!! :D

During the summer, in my hometown, I help organize the Incerceltic Festival of Avilés (Festival Intercélticu d’Avilés), which is an immense pleasure for me. Great fun, really!

When in Glasgow, I enjoy playing in different sessions around the area. Mainly, Babbity Bowster’s on a Saturday afternoon, Islay Inn on Monday nights and Lochwinnoch on Sundays.

I play an Ormiston High D and an MK Pro Low D. Just got a couple of whistles made by Jon Swayne (High D and C) and I absolutely loved them. Also have a few Susatos in other keys.
My flute, for now (and I guess it’ll be a while until I move to something else) is a Hammy Hamilton Practice flute in D.
