I discovered the nyckelharpa after working at the VICC in Gotland in 2013, and got totally obsessed with it. It’s my favourite instrument, and I am mainly using it to improvise and create work, but also play some traditional music. I have had private lessons with prominent nyckelharpist Vicki Swan and attended multiple instances of the UK Nyckelharpa Festival at Halsway Folk Arts Centre. I am very interested in other composers who may want to write music for me on this instrument. I am also actively seeking collaborations for performance, please get in touch.
I studied double bass with Michael Escreet, ex-principal double bass of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. I can now be found playing locally in Sheffield’s amateur orchestras.
I studied guitar from the age of 14, and have had lessons in rock, jazz classical and metal styles. I have recently been found playing in a few local Klezmer groups.
