A great few weeks

Written on Wednesday, June 8th, 2016 at 1:56 pm

Summer has arrived and weddings are in full flow with beautiful dresses and venues and nervous grooms. I’ve been playing everything from Shrek to Chopin. It’s been interesting and quite time consuming listening and arranging all the requests. There is never a dull day. I’ve also been in to RWCMD helping teaching with pre exam […]

I’m busy practising for a string of concerts which are being organised as we speak. The studio is booked and I hopefully will have a new series of videos to┬átie in with the jazz recordings. It’s been a long time since I started on my path of jazz and it has been very exciting, frustrating […]

Clarsarch players improvising and weddings begin…

Written on Monday, March 21st, 2016 at 2:23 pm

After a busy weekend playing at the beautiful Peterstone court and Celtic Manor, I hot-footed over to Newbury to teach a lovely groups of Clarsarch players. The group were brilliant and by the end we were playing the blues, improvising and sliding levers to the point of giving any harp maker a slight coronary. A […]

Christmas is coming..

Written on Monday, December 14th, 2015 at 4:16 pm

It’s my favourite time of the year. My favourite music and a cwtchy (welsh for warm and welcoming..but indescribable really) warmth wherever you go. Ive been writing new music for the up and coming series of Pedalslider books that Tony and I are working on. There will be lots of new material for all levels […]

A busy few months

I should apologise for not having written any sooner. It has been an exciting period in my life. Back in April, I was absolutely honoured to play at Edinburgh Harp Festival with my trio as well as teaching at the festival for the week. We received such a warm welcome and we had a ball. […]

Another great week started with playing for the Orient Express in London. It really is such a wonderful experience and the train is beautiful….always a pleasure to be part of such a great team. Saturday also saw a little sunshine and a gorgeous wedding in Llechwen Hall and in the evening I played at Celtic […]

What a week!

It’s been an amazing week. Starting with playing at Le Manoir for a very romantic Valentines proposal. Set outside in the beautiful grounds, with snow on the floor, I was honoured to be part of the most beautiful setting and occasion. Luckily she said yes! On Friday, the Lyon and Healy Awards came to Cardiff…a […]
