I’m an Englishman in Utrecht (NL). I teach and edit academic English writing and run a private practice as an integrative therapist/counselor.
To stay sane, I play folk and folk-influenced music using instruments I’ve collected over 35 years including: a Korg Triton Classic workstation (often hooked up to a software synth on my laptop), acoustic guitars (a Valdez 50E Spanish cutaway, a Yamaha CJ-818 jumbo 6-string and a Takamine EAN40C 12-string, all fitted with piezoelectric pickups) , percussion instruments (Irish bodhran, Turkish darbuka, Senegalese djembe and taman, a Hugh Tracey kalimba, etc.) and various whistles (Burke Low D Aluminum Pro Viper, MK Kelpie Low F, Tony Dixon aluminium alto G, brass alto A and nickel soprano D). Most of all, I love listening to and playing slow Irish airs.
