I am a singer/guitarist from the Midlands (now based in Norfolk) performing traditional songs of the British Isles & creating songs inspired by folkloric customs, folk poesy & poetry.
I enjoy stories & themes found in traditional songs & ballads. I love the richness & beauty of the melodies and the journey each song takes you on.
