I have worked as a professional guitarist since the 1970s, undertaking the full range of freelance work, including TV/Radio, backing artists, concerts, theatre orchestras and musicals, etc. As a jazz guitarist I continue to direct a variety of jazz ensembles for concerts, recordings, broadcasts and festivals. Over the years I have also had the pleasure to work with major jazz soloists from the UK (Digby Fairweather, John Barnes, Dick Morrissey, Don Weller, Roy Williams, Harry Becket, Don Rendell, Guy Barker, Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams, Jamie Talbot, Ronnie Ross, Peter King, Alan Skidmore, Brian Lemon, Al Gay, Chris ‘Snake’ Davis) and the USA (Scott Hamilton, Bud Freeman, Peanuts Hucko, Spike Robinson, Kenny Davern, Harry Allen).
