Hai La Drum

Hai la Drum was a band featuring Romanian virtuoso violin player Vasile Stanescu, also known as “Baz”. The other musicians were Jonny Hepbir and subsequently Jason Henson, guitar; Dan Sheppard, bass; and myself, accordion.

The band performed in a series of short tours of the UK from 2007 – 2010, covering London, the South East, Gloucestershire, Wales and East Anglia to critical acclaim. This was cut short when Baz passed away in Jan. 2013 after battling lymphatic cancer.

Captain Swing and the Blacksmith

Beatrice Parvin’s debut novel Captain Swing and the Blacksmith, is set in the West Country in the 1840s, a time when the area was in the grip of poverty.  Beatrice has produced a folk operetta from the book which I am proud to be a part of. We undertook a successful tour of Wiltshire in May 2019. More dates coming soon!
