I am a Manchester based accordionist and have been playing the accordion since the age of 9 (some time ago now!) and have enjoyed playing in public regularly ever since. Music is a big passion of mine and equally the accordion. Growing up, at every opportunity I would play the accordion (better than homework - although I did eventually end up with a music degree so not entirely wasted!). I also have won the UK Accordion Championship on more than one occasion...
I have played in restaurants since the age of 18 and also have many years experience playing for wedding ceremonies and receptions, christmas parties, birthdays and corporate events. I have even made a guest appearance in the channel 4 program, Shameless.
The accordion is a beautiful sounding instrument with its rich and varied tones and is perfect for playing French, Classical, Argentinian tango and Eastern European Folk just to name a few.
If you would like to discuss your requirements or simply have any questions you would like me to answer, please do not hesitate to contact me.
