I was born in England but have lived in New Zealand for many years. I currently live in Snells Beach Auckland. I love to play five string banjo in the melodic clawhammer style. I taught myself in the early nineties with the aid of a Ken Perlman book and tape set . I also play guitar in the country blues style with a bit of Merle Travis thrown in. I listen to and enjoy all types of music. I played guitar in a band full time from my teens to late twenties but since then have played for my own enjoyment only.
