Featuring music as diverse as the reflective Crouch End Waltz and Crouch End Broadway and the driving motion of Shinkansen (Japanese bullet train).

No silly noises or distressing twangs! Just beautiful sounds and melodies. The compositions highlight such diverse musical influences as Classical, Folk, Jazz and Latin all performed on solo guitar or as guitar/flute duos. All pieces are featured on the recently released recording Postcards from Crouch End and include the wonderful Tachi-ai which was record of the week on Lyric FM Ireland.
