ABOUT

I currently make my living as a music teacher in Grimsby (teaching guitar, bass, drums, piano and sax) and am looking to make a little extra cash playing on the side. I specialize in playing slide guitar (especially dobro, as you can see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fecnm7R_n7A) and can play keys, and sing. I have some demos if you require.
