Winter 2007
Happy New Year to all and I hope that everyone had a great Christmas!

I finished the year with a lovely concert at the Cadogan Hall in London playing with The Hendon Band and The Kings Singers - what a great way to end the season!

Looking ahead - I am really looking forward to the Day of Percussion at the RNCM on the 11th of February where I will be speaking about the various aspects of playing percussion in brass bands. There is a great line up of superb artists performing and talking throughout the day as well as a wealth of trade and information stands. It is definitely a date not to be missed!

At the very end of last year the new disc from Equivox arrived entitled 'The Time is Now'. We are doing several concerts to promote the disc in the spring but you can get hold of a copy very easily by logging on to

I hope you enjoy it and I hope to see you at a concert soon.

Best wishes
