My decision last year to stop touring is so far working well, enough work is coming in with bits of teaching and studio stuff to keep the wolf from the door. The occasional gig does however still come my way. So this coming Sunday 5th August I will be at the Sparrow Bier Cafe Bradford with my good friend and fine Blues exponent Gerry Cooper. KO is 4.00pm

June 2nd Armley Mills Festival. 0113 3783173
The gigs below will be for the foreseeable future my last live performances. Not a sudden decision; one I have been working towards for a few years and for a number of diverse reasons. My teaching and studio stuff mentioned on the other parts of the site will continue and who knows what the future may bring in term of live stuff. I did my first paid gig in 1974, it's been a fantastic ride ever since but time for a change. I have met and worked with many fantastic people in particular Dave Moss and Saskia Tomkins who both toured with me during the 90s and early 2000s Any changes I will post here for the moment though hope to see you at the Topic on the 20th July.
