Christmas 2013

Greetings everyone........another of my all too infrequent posts! I was so happy to be home for Christmas.....I wondered, at one point, whether I would make it due to some flight complications but all ended up fine. I fly out again on the 29th to join a HAL ship in the Canaries so will be at sea for the new year. A few days at home...

September 2013

Well...... I guess you could say I'm living up to my reputation of not writing too regularly on this blog! It was wonderfu to take August off from touring and go on a real vacation; no music and nowhere near the ocean! Uganda, central Africa in fact, to go mountain gorilla treking. Vickie and I had am absolutely wonderful time - truly...

Home!

Returned yesterday from a cruise taking in Argentinia and Chile.....quiete beautiful scenery but, although the height of summer down there it's so far south as to be pretty gloomy much of the time! Wonderful to be home with Vickie for a week before we both head off to London combining some family visiting and some gigs. Am looking forward (kind...

18 January 2013

Have now been home a few days from my last cruise contract and am always so happy to be back here with Vickie! Yesterday I arranged to have some new publicity photographs done; the combination of the nphotographers schedule and mine will mean they probably won't be on here for about a month but it will...

Well...... I said I wasn't going to be writing every day or week.......but I do promise to make an effort! 2013 is shaping up to be a good year; there are many enquiries already  coming in regarding both land based work and guest appearances on cruise ships. I had a wonderful New Years Eve doing a guest spot with the Dick Goodwin big band at...

Welcome!

 

Welcome to my new, relaunched website! I've decided to include a blog..... my travels with my clarinet have taken - and are taking me - to many far flung corners of the world and I feel extremely lucky to have experienced so many things and places and to have met so many wonderful people. 

I'm not going to try and kid anyone...
