Well I have just seen the thread asking for advice on going pro in the folk scene so I thought that a thread on actually going pro seemed relivent.

I am 21 and play the Piano Accordion in a number of bands. You may already have hearded of 422 but I also play in The Pack, AAAAG, duo with my Dad as well as performing solo.

In May I will be starting work with 'Live Music Now' a scheme which takes Jazz, Folk and classical musicians into venues like special schools, day centres to village halls etc

I also am able to run workshops in accordion - all levels, band arrangments, folk music, french canadian foot percussion and beginners bodhran.

Who knows I may see some of you in the future. I am also in the next year aiming to get a solo band together and release a CD, so keep your eyes peeled.

For more info check out my website:

Cheers, Sam
