I play the violin

You can see all my music & violin related posts here.  


Langstrom's Pony / The Taproom / Lord Ramsey's Reel by mossery 

I have played the violin since I was 7 years old.

I am 'classically trained' as far as someone who never practiced their scales can be, however these days I prefer to play traditional Irish music. I also have aspirations towards gypsy, manouche & klezmer music.

My violin inspirations are Roby Lakatos, Martin Hayes, Cathal Hayden and that guy from Guappecarto.

I have contributed violin for the electro glitch-pop album The Signal and the Noise by Andrew Paul Regan.

I play fiddle in the Irish folk band in South Wales, The Hairpin Bend - among many other venues and pubs we've appeared at Brecon Fringe Festival, Blue Lagoon Festival, Clwb Y Bont, Rumney Folk Festival, Cwmaman Music Festival and Cwlwm Celtaidd Festival.

Want to book us? Please get in touch if so. We are now available to do pub gigs/weddings/parties/wakes/parties/street celebrations & folk festivals all over South Wales and beyond.

If you live in South Wales and play trad music I'm always up for a session!
