Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I aim to be as flexible as possible so please just get in touch if anything changes and we can work it out so your booking will run as smoothly as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I can absolutely provide a playlist via iPod or Spotify to set the mood if required but I have yet to add DJ-ing to my skill-set.

How much time do you need to set up?

This depends on the gig and what you need me for. At the very least it takes me roughly 15 seconds to put my oboe together and 2 minutes to quickly warm up and tune!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I'm happy to chat to you and make sure the service I'm providing ticks as many of your boxes as possible.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes absolutely! I bring my own instrument/s to play acoustically and a music stand if required.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

With enough notice, I'm willing to learn anything and everything if you have anything you desire in particular.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

After a performance people always comment on my smile and how much I look like I'm enjoying myself. I can't help it!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

As a classical oboist/cor anglais player I have played Southwark Cathedral, Cadogan Hall, St John's Smith Square, St Andrews Holborn in London. Most notably otherwise The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and Sheffield Town Hall. As a folk performer, I have most notably played at Shepley Folk Festival.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Classical music: it's cheesy but by my tutors and peers, though my favourite composers are Shostakovich and Mahler. Folk music-wise: Moore Moss Rutter, Blair Dunlop, Gilmore & Roberts, Kitty MacFarlane, Kate Rusby, Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys, Fairport Convention, Richard Thompson and Bellowhead.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I played at the Bridgewater Hall with Jason Manford for a Charity Christmas Concert in Piccadilly Symphony Orchestra which is the most star-studded gig to date.
