What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
If necessary, this can be provided.
How much time do you need to set up?
As an organist, I would need very little time to setup, other than familiarising myself with the instrument. I can also provide a high-quality, portable instrument which takes about 15 minutes to setup.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I have a very wide repertoire but am happy to tailor what I play to the client's needs.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I can provide my own, high-quality instrument, or can use the organ in the building concerned.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
There is no problem with this, given sufficient notice. Depending upon the complexity of the music, there may be a fee for this, according to the practice time needed.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My performances are known for being tailored to the individual needs of the clients as well as for covering a wide range of repertoire, according to needs.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have performed in churches, cathedrals, concert halls, theatres as well as more intimate venues such as private homes, corporate events, wedding receptions. My performing has taken me across the UK as well as Europe and beyond. As a conductor, I have also conducted in a football stadium, from the centre of the pitch!
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
As an organist, I have been very heavily influenced by one of my teachers, Gordon Stewart. As well as being a technically virtuosic player, Gordon has a real ability to make the instrument sing and to connect with his audiences.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I have played for Mass at Nôtre Dame Cathedral in Paris, to a congregation of 2500 people.
