I have finally got a video up, thanks to my dear friend Lilian Simonsson who produced it and my son Bahrun who was the sound engineer. The piece I am playing is an arrangement by Toru Takemitsu ( ) of the old Irish traditional, ‘Londonderry Air’. I am playing it in East Sussex in a place called Firle. It was very  enjoyable working with such highly skilled pro’s like Lilian and Bahrun on this project. I am now producing a video with one of my own compositions and hope to get an equally good response. Look out for it! Thank you all for your encouraging feedback. 🙂
