    Visit To Pellwood HQ

    I have been a proud endorser of Pellwood Professional Drumsticks for six years, now – and now, for the first time, I am travelling to Čestice, in the Czech Republic, to visit the company, and see their operation in action.

    I am really looking forward to meeting Ivan and his team at Pellwood, and talking shop with them, and seeing where the drumsticks which I use on a daily basis actually come from!

    Following on from the gig Witchers did at the Classic Rock Society, supporting British Prog acts Credo and Comedy Of Errors, we have also been interviewed by the Classic Rock Society’s own magazine. In this interview – appearing in the May/June issue of the magazine – we talk about going from a four-piece to a five-piece line-up, and the changes that has had within the band, and we discuss our plans for the new album (coming later this year) and what lies beyond.

  • In Harmony Sistema

    In Harmony Sistema

    In Harmony is a project working to bring musical education to primary school children in some of the most deprived parts of the country. Inspired by, and partly modelled on, the famous Venezuelan “El Sistema”, In Harmony Sistema currently works in three areas in England – Lambeth, Liverpool, and Norwich.

    I am very excited to be working with the Norwich branch of In Harmony Sistema, which is run by the Norwich and Norfolk Community Arts organisation, as a percussion teacher, and I am looking forward to being able to bring music to chidren who, otherwise, might not have the opportunities to learn.

    Having seen the work that In Harmony Sistema do in local primary schools, I feel sure that this initiative is having a huge positive impact on the lives of many local children, and I am delighted to be involved, and to be a part of that process.
