One of my favourite things about the bass is how versatile the instrument is and this has allowed me to experience a wide-range of both performance and education scenarios. I have worked with professional orchestras such as the BBC Philharmonic, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Halle Orchestra and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra appearing at the BBC Proms and touring abroad as well as regularly appearing around the UK. I have performed on BBC Radio 3 and have appeared in a variety of ensembles from duo/trio to big band. I currently the bass player for the Beats & Pieces Big Band and regularly perform with them around the UK and in Europe. Another project I play with is the Johnny Hunter Quartet. I have played at the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Manchester Jazz Festival and the Manchester International Festival as well as appearing at Celtic Connections and the Edinburgh International Festival. Other performances have included playing at WOMAD and Love Supreme Festivals.
