I have 2 degrees, including archaeology, and a museum studies MA. My MA dissertation was on the use of live music in museums and historic sites, I use this research to provide a firm background to my performances to ensure they complement the environment. I have been a musician for around 30 years and developed and focused my interest on period music over the last 10 years. I play regularly at museums and historic sites in Southern England. I also work in the heritage sector around the area of education, interpretation and accessibility.
