In this area you can find information about my own musical projects, and details of other groups I am involved in.

Carols from the Coalfields - I have set to music and am now performing a selection of the poems of my great-great-grandfather, Joseph Skipsey (1832-1903), a self-educated coal miner who lived in what is now North Tyneside. 

Muscadin - more than a ceilidh band 

Morrigan - a cappella folk singing quartet

Music-making in Central Charlton
Central Charlton has an active residents association (CCRA) and this has given rise to two music-making groups which are active in the area.  The singing group meets fortnightly and sings mainly for pleasure, but has performed very successfully at local events.  The instrumental group, which is known as SE7, plays a wide range of music and has started performing regularly in local venues.

Workshops and musical projects
I offer a range of vocal and instrumental workshops with young people and adults, and CPD sessions to support practitioners involved in teaching music. I enjoy working with all ages and all levels of experience and ability. Please click here for further details.
