I have taught mandolin and performed professionally for over ten years, touring Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Slovenia, France and the UK. My playing has been featured on BBC radio, and I have led numerous workshops on the mandolin and traditional music for all ages.

Current projects include acclaimed folk group The Shackleton Trio with whom I've performed at major festivals across Europe and the UK.  I also occasionally perform alongside top UK clawhammer banjo player and BBC Folk Award nominee Dan Walsh in the Dan Walsh Trio.
