In 2018 I gave up playing other people's music to make my own. In collaboration with composer and organist Benjamin Teague, singer RM Parry and poet Luca Paci some new work took shape and was performed in ‘Playing for Time’ on 15 Feb 2019 at All Saints Church, Penarth. Singer Claire Gardner and violinist Bethan Frieze joined us, along with artist Ifor Davies who worked the handsaw for a new ensemble piece by Richard Parry.
