My New Box Demo

Hello all!

First off, I have a gig at Baldock and Letchworth Folk Club this Wednesday the 17th October. I’ll be playing for 25 minutes or so in support of the fabulous Jody Kruskall. Hope to see lots of you there.

I have now moved into my new residence in Cambridge and very nice it is too. For the first time in around 8 years I have my own desk, which need not be used for anything other than work (or in my case, fettling). The house is still full of instruments, but we are gradually getting on top of that. In a spare moment whilst sorting the house out, I recorded a demo on solo box using a Zoom H2 lent to me by a friend. This is mainly to send round clubs as advertising, but I thought that I would share it with my hypothetical readers as well. Continue reading

I am also half way through writing the third part of “Inside and Out”, but to keep you going and informed I thought I’d write you this post on my next few weeks. Continue reading

I am a Part IIB Engineer, which for those of you not familiar with the bizarre and inexplicable Cambridge Tripos system means that I am currently studying for my Masters in Engineering (MEng) at Cambridge, being in my fourth year of four. You can imagine my delight when I realised that I had three different coursework deadlines for the week just gone (I would explain them, but can guarantee that nobody could ever possibly be interested).

Gigs gigs gigs…

Did a gig today. I like doing gigs, I love performing and it’s a nice challenge, to keep people enthralled with just some vibrating bits of metal and a few jokes. I was playing at the Maltings Arts Theatre in my home town of St Albans. They are running a series of folk concerts on the first Friday of every month and this was the first. Continue reading

First post

So, I’ve decided to try and publicise myself a bit. Instead of doing it the old fashioned way, and creating one webpage that has everything on it, I’m attempting the new-fashioned way. I now have a youtube account, a facebook page, a twitter account and now this blog. Hopefully between those four pages all the information that would have been on the single webpage is now available. Aren’t modern technology paradigms wonderful?
