Gigs and Open Mic

     I regularly play gigs and run Open Mic & Songwriters Nights.

On Wednesday 17th July for the third year running I'm performing in my one woman show How The Universe Works (The Answer To Everything) as part of the Hastings Fringe Festival at The VIP Lounge George Street Hastings 7.30pm. A mixture of music, comedy, philosophy and autobiography to explain the Grand Unified Theory of Everything. Tickets will soon be available at Hastings Fringe Show website and include a free CD and badge!

On Sunday 7th April 2019 I played Beatles Day with Gaby and Justin Farrow and John O Sullivan at Hastings White Rock Theatre in aid of Macmillan, including Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, She's Leaving Home and Love Me Do. The total amount raised for the day was over £27K - congratulations to all involved!

On Sunday March 10th 2019 at 4pm at The Jenny Lind, I supported Go! Bodicea with Gaby Farrow on violin and keyboards and Justin Farrow on bass and guitar.

On 29th January 2019 at The Nelson Hastings, I played In Search Of Anna as part of a John Martyn tribute night, video below courtesy of the barman:
