It's full steam ahead with my UK concert dates again now, I'm so looking forward to playing all over the country again this year, and I've just had a great trip to Scotland which was very enjoyable.

Last year was another very busy year, travelling round the country performing on theatre organs and at keyboard festivals. Highlights included taking part in the Blackpool festival in May, the Cinema Organ Society's Northern Convention in August, and a wonderful visit to Folly Farm near Tenby in September, not to mention my summer season and Christmas shows.
