I like to collect and record folk ballads, mostly from Ireland, Scotland and England. Recordings are available on my YouTube channel.
Most of the songs, being 100s of years old, have already been written about extensively. However, if something particularly interests me I will write about it on this blog.
I perform regularly around the Yass area in Australia, at festivals, local cafe’s and markets.
I write my own music, mostly in the style of traditional ballads, and have released a few of my own albums, more information here.
The internet is a fantastic resource for people interested in recording and researching folk music, resources which I consistently rely on are mudcat, mainlynorfolk and the large library of recordings and song lyrics hosted by Raymond Crooke.
My ‘proper’ albums are available on the digital release and streaming services, but I have also written some less mainstream songs about social justice issues or filk songs, I publish these on my Bandcamp site.
I occasionally write poetry, and publish it here.
