When not working, I spend as much time as possible playing music. I primarily play instruments with keys and instruments with frets, along with singing choral music as a tenor.
I am currently the organist and music director at Saint John's Episcopal Church in Honeoye Falls near Rochester, New York. Before that I served in these roles at Saint Margaret's Episcopal Church in Dundee, Scotland.
The first photo is the hybrid pipe-digital Allen organ we designed for St Mary the Virgin in Chappaqua NY, my parish home before we moved to Scotland. The next is a shot from a wonderful Celtic session I got to play at the Ballymaloe House, Ballycotton, County Cork, Ireland.
Instruments I play with keys (where "key" is somewhat loosely defined):
- Organ (pipe and tone-wheel)
- Piano and synthesizer
- Trumpet (Bb and C) and Flugelhorn
- English concertina and Irish tin whistle (learning)
Instruments I play with frets:
- Guitar (acoustic, electric, and hexaphonic driving Roland V-Guitar and synth)
- Mandolin and Octave Mandolin
