Sat Feb 3 2024 3 to 4pm, singing my originals at Mojo's Music Cafe in Scarborough


My music was used for sound effects in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream at Bradford Cathedral 27 to 29 July 2023, details at


Sang my "Scarborough Jazz" and some Fats Waller at the Cask in Scarborough at the Jazz Club's Jam Night on Wednesday 12 April. Many thanks to Bob and Moses for super backing


May 4th :  For an hour I was "Ringing Bells for Brontës" at the piano at Leeds Playhouse, as part of their 1001 Stories project. Film now on Brontës page.

Commencing 30 April - That's me on the left in 2022 July on board the "Southern Star" in Scarborough Harbour for a folk session with friends.  In 2023, there's free music every final Sunday of the month, 3 to 5pm April to September. On deck if fine, in the cafe if not. My main contribution will be on September 24. The boat - the largest in Scarborough Harbour - is the cafe and shop for a super marine project called Seagrown, which is worth knowing about - here's my song about it.

​​My new play "AIREY TALES" was premiered at Saltaire Festival in September 2021, on Theatre page and on my YouTube channel


TRACKING THE BRONTES is approaching its 40th performance, starting out in West Yorkshire and now in the East Riding and North Yorkshire, including Scarborough's Woodend,  Whitby Fine Arts Society  Ryedale U3A, Hull and  Kirby Misperton U3A,  was also seen by a packed Memorial Hall at Beverley, and went to Guisborough U3A, to Friends of Scarborough Library and to E Yorks Family History Society. It's been to Cottingham Methodist Friendship Group, to St Martin's Scarborough, and thence to South Cave U3A. in 2023 it's been to Swanland and to the Probus Club in Pickering.  U3A Driffield August 2023 was the latest venue.  Available for more bookings.......


Was at SCALBY FOLK WEEKEND at the Nag's Head singing some of my originals in September  2001 and 2022 but am missing it this year .

On the evening of Friday October 20 I'm performing some of my "Yorkshire" songs at the National Dialect Festival at the Expanse Hotel, Bridlington.

Looking ahead, I have an hour of my original songs (3 to 4pm) booked at Mojo's Music Cafe in Scarborough on 3rd February 2024


 "Salts Waters" popped up again at Bradford Rowing Club (this is an excellent guide to a walk from and back to Saltaire),  and I brought a new presentation "Saltaire and Scarborough" to St Andrews Church Fellowship Scarborough. That also went to Osgodby Community Centre in May.

"Two Tykes on t'Loose" has been on t'loose at St Peter's Church Hall Shipley, at Dewsbury U3A and at Shaggy Dog Storytellers, Stubbing Wharf, Hebden Bridge, and a version of this appeared at Scarborough Library in 2022.
