I’m in various music-related projects, be it organising, playing or composing.
[Celtic Tones](https://www.celtictones.com/) playing flute
[The Last Aurochs](https://thelastaurochs.com/) playing gaita, bass and some flute
[Bitpiper](https://bitpiper.bandcamp.com/) some electronic music and weirder ideas
[Trad for Good](https://tradforgood.com/) a personal promoting business organising trad shows mixed with fundraising
I’ve also participated in two [Ethno Australia](https://www.facebook.com/EthnoAustralia/), played flute at one [Celtic Illusion](http://celticillusion.com.au/), and other various shows and gigs. I don’t usually teach, but you’re welcome to [contact me](mailto:email@example.com) if you really want a lesson.
