What's on now:

I am starting a project writing music and songs with the wonderful Project eARTh in Buxton

Stone Flowers sessions are starting up again, working towards a performance later this year

I'm dropping in on SICK! Festival as part of the focus group - looking forward to seeing some ground breaking work around mental health, identity and society

"Songs are really just interesting things to be doing with the air" - Tom Waits

"What other function can music have? - to make us whole again" - Sergei Rakmaninoff

Last year:

10th December: Stone Flowers performed at Manchester Museum

17th December: RISE! performed at Solidarity Social at St Margaret's Church, Rufford Road, Manchester M16 8AE - doors open 7.30

In November and December I worked on an exciting project in Rochdale, alongside Jaydev Mistry with the Royal Exchange. We created music with young people with hearing impairments for a project called 'Heard Not Hidden', and finished off with a performance to parents and invited guests - for many of them it was the first time they had ever made music or performed in public - it was a privilege to work with them.
