I have been involved with music and bands in Perth, Western Australia since the late '60's when I played rhythm, lead and bass guitars with a variety of pop and rock bands. However by the mid '70's I had tired of the scene and virtually retired until the early '90's when I started playing acoustic music. These days I play mainly mandolin, dobro, bass and guitar but also some bouzouki, dulcimer, synth and even occasional flute (I won't mention the banjo). Recently I have started to grapple with the clarinet but I think it'll be a while yet before it's heard in public.
2001 and 2002 were busy years for me, gigging in three different bands:- Dingo's Breakfast (an Oz music and poetry band), Off My Cloud (a pub circuit Rolling Stones tribute band) and Otters Brew (a medieval folk-rock band).
I relocated to the south coast of WA in 2003 and have become more involved in writing and recording than in gigging since then.
