The album is very special to me and Chris and we are thrilled that the 'boss' Richard Sanderson has released this disc and the online album.

Solo viola concert at YIAP, Brussels 2016

In September 2016 I had the pleasure of playing a solo set at YIAP in Brussels. Always a pleasure to play there! 

Thanks to Peter Friess for hosting us at his super arts venue, and for making this film. Also thanks to Maurice Charles JJ for his programming ideas and for making the recording.

ImproCON in Croatia & concerts in Slovenia. AMAZING!

What a superb time making music at improCON in Croatia, followed by concerts in Slovenia. 

Great music from over 70 great artists from all over the world. Then two excellent concerts in Slovenia with some of the participants who all wound up in Ljubljana! 

Check out this ACE organisation & event. They are doing exciting things:

Huge thanks to the entire improCON team of visionaries, all the artists, photographers and thinkers involved. Also huge thanks to all those involved in putting on and playing the post convention concerts in Ljubljana & Vrhnika. 

A few snaps. There are apparently hundreds more.....
