Music

I’m in various music-related projects, be it organising, playing or composing.

Celtic Tones playing flute

The Last Aurochs playing gaita, bass and some flute

Bitpiper some electronic music and weirder ideas

Trad for Good a personal promoting business organising trad shows mixed with fundraising

I’ve also participated in two Ethno Australia, played flute at one Celtic Illusion, and other various shows and gigs. I don’t usually teach, but you’re welcome to contact me if you really want a lesson.
