Hi Everyone, A very happy new year! Looking forward in 2015 to starting (or maybe re-starting!) a musical journey in the folk world. For the past 7 years it's been a delight to play with Barry, Les, Mel etc in the Andy Smythe Band. I'm looking forward in 2015 to getting back to the way I started circa 1999 and re-visiting the folk clubs and indeed discovering a plethora of new venues. I'm excited by challenging myself musically to play the piano to a fully appreciative audience listening and hanging on your every word and re-honing the skills of songwriting and craftsmanship that solo performance entails. I'm gonna try and write and record some classic tunes in 2015, and look forward to bringing them to a sensitive venue somewhere near you!
