I have a strong, clear singing voice, developed through singing unamplified at outdoor events accompanied by loud accoustic instruments (I can still sing more gently too!).
I am one of the country's only lyre players (as seen on 'Marrying Mum & Dad', BBC 2012) and an experienced side-drum/marching-drum player using counter-rhythms to add texture.
I'm also competent on a range of stringed instruments, woodwind, brass and percussion.

Instruments:
Lyre (suitable for Ancient Greek, Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Early Medieval)
Medieval fanfare trumpet
Percussion - especially side drums
Renaissance cittern
Simple woodwind (whistles and recorder, reed-cap shawm etc)

Live performance on BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’ playing lyre (BBC, 2014).
