I have been in the music business since leaving school and played many different styles of music, including Blues, Heavy Rock, Country, Swing, Folk & standards.

Two years ago my wife Anne and I made a decision to go right back to our early musical interest with Folk & Blues music, and have a very good following throughout the Midlands.

Along with traditional and contemporary Blues, we decided to add Cajun & Zydeco to our repertoire, which we had played back in the eighties on the Country music scene and happily this mixture has resulted in many club & festival engagements.

The success of the Cajun & Zydeco show on Hermitage FM led to a two hour weekly Blues show

I am now very pleased to be part of the team at Hermitage FM and looking forward to a long association with many happy hours of Blues, Cajun & Zydeco.
