What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients have appreciated the careful programming of my solo performances, particularly those that have asked me to suggest appropriate repertoire. They love the sound I make on the flute, especially in a church or large building and have appreciated my professional approach.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
As an orchestral player, I have played in the Usher Hall and Queen's Hall in Edinburgh, St Andrew's in the Square and Bute Hall in Glasgow and in the famous Gewandhaus, Leipzig with Amicus Orchestra. As soloist, I have performed in St Giles' Cathedral, Dunblane Cathedral, Eilean Donan Castle and in many church buildings.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
I love the flute playing of Emmanuel Pahud and Lorna McGhee and have always enjoyed the wonderful sound that William Bennett makes on the flute. I am also influenced by many other Classical musicians (especially string players), including James Ehnes, Jonathan Morton, Andras Schiff and Nicola Benedetti - I learn greatly from their phrasing and musicianship.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I played a concert of music by Peter Maxwell Davies, Bruch and Mendelssohn with Amicus Orchestra to a full house of nearly 2,000 people in the famous Gewandhaus in Leipzig in November 2018 which was very enthusiastically received by the audience.
