Public liability insurance of £10 million

I'm a Scottish drummer based in London and recently finished studying at Trinity Laban where I did a fully funded Masters with an Archers and Trinity College London scholarship. My debut album as bandleader, Khoalesce, has recently been released and was launched at Ronnie Scott's and Pizza Express Soho. I work as a freelance musician, playing drums and timpani in various groups in and around London. Highlights of 2018 were playing Bernstein's MASS at the Royal Festival Hall conducted by Marin Alsop, and with the WOW Orchestra featuring Alice Russell. I live in central London and my timpani are available for hire to local orchestras.

It was great having Caroline play with us - she brought a real enthusiasm to the concert and willingness to work with our ensemble. Would happily use her again (and have done).

The Mayfair Shakers brought wonderful energy to our event. Caroline communicated with me from the moment we booked the band, and promptly answered any questions that we had. They were kind enough to accommodate a slight delay in our schedule and they were happy to help in any way that they could. The music was fantastic and very professional, people thoroughly enjoyed it. We would book them again for another event without hesitation. Thank you Mayfair Shakers.

Each time I perform with Caroline, she always brings something unique to the music. Not to mention that every time I hear her play, she's always at the top of her game. She's definitely worth booking, also very nice to hang out with.
