Kobi Onyame – TRNSMT

Been loads of fun hitting a few festivals with Kobi Onyame this summer.

Got to do it with the full 4 piece horn section (that I arranged) at TRNSMT pretty early on the first day of the festival on Glasgow Green. Check it out via the BBC here:

Hackney Colliery Band – Moonbeams Festival

Had the absolute pleasure of standing in with the mighty Hackney Colliery Band at a festival in Yorkshire a couple of weeks ago, and some bits of it were caught on video…

Here’s their cover of Three Trapped Tigers’ “Cramm’ (which was a whole lot of fun to get under the fingers).


Very happy to be taking The Katet on a 7 date tour in February. Look out, UK! for more details... for more details…

Orkestra del Sol

I’m very pleased to say that, having depped a little (on alto/soprano sax) in 2011, I’m joining the incredible Orkestra del Sol as a permanent member (on tenor and soprano saxophones) in 2013 (founding member Oli being on maternity leave). The gig schedule is distinctly more modest than previous years, and all in August, but I’m looking forward to each and every one in its own way.

In May we spent a week in beautiful Atalbeitar in southern Spain rehearsing, and closed the Sunday night of Knockengorroch festival in Dumfries. While in Spain we made this little film, which is the nicest memento of the week I can think of. Cheers to the uber-talented Stephen Talneau for making it happen.
