In my time as a performer I’ve played with wonderful artists such as  Jim Causley, Martin Carthy and Jackie Oates.  Fond memories are opening The Imagined Village‘s Bending the Dark UK tour by singing a duet with Eliza Carthy on Cold Haily Rainy Night. I’m mainly a guitarist and flautist, but I have appeared on recordings playing violin, ukulele, mandolin and clarinet.  Currently I front the sleepy indie band Catherine And The Owl and the psychedelic rock band RamEagle.

I’ve written for film and theatre, on shows such as Four of Swords’ Wellcome Trust funded show ‘Doctor Dracula’ and Common Player’s The Tuck Inn.  My short film All that Remains was nominated for best film at the English Riviera International Film Festival, and I worked  as 1st Assistant Director on the BBC Calling The Shots commission The Free, and Hell’s Bells, which was commissioned as part of the BFI’s Creative England iShorts.

I’ve done some music for film and my score for Portent was nominated for best short film score at Southampton International Film Festival. I also scored A Campfire Tale and All That Remains

For almost 20 years I’ve worked in live theatre, mainly as an actor. I’ve worked a lot in non-traditional locations, such as caves and abandoned historic buildings. Lovely companies I’ve worked with a lot are Four of Swords, Common Players, Pocketwatch Theatre, and Wandering Tiger.
