“With most people, it’s them playing the instrument, but with you, it’s just you” (audience member)

“One of the most instinctively beautiful players I know.” (Annie Whitehead)

“Irrepressible” (Adam Bradbury, Diego Brown and the Good Fairy)

I am a trumpeter and workshop leader based in Norwich. I play with Natural Causes (www.naturalcauses.org.uk), Rude 2.0 (with the trombonist Annie Whitehead), and several mostly brass-based bands in Norfolk.

I lead the Moonrise Trio (which also includes Ben Higham on tuba and Dan Weiss on drums and tabla).

I hope to see you at a gig!
