I am in my early fifties and have played since my early teens (gosh ! 40 years) I play guitar (Takamine) tenor banjo (clareen pearl ) and mandolin (fylde octavius) plus harmonicas and a few whistles. I am based in Kent and gig regularly at least three times weekly, sometimes five or six ! I do a lot of outdoor festival type gigs with a bunch of trusted muso friends although I would love to assemble a decent singalong outfit (think Dubliners, Spinners ) As this is the sort of stuff most requested at gigs and, its fun regardless of what the folk police might say ! I sing and love the more entertaining aspect of folk music, so thats me !!!
