Friends and Acquaintances

David Jarratt-Knock
An authoritative source for information on the renaissance cornett, produced by me mate Dave.

Merrie Noyse - My mates Sue, Baz and Rod, who do jolly performances of early music to suit all tastes.

Heather Wastie
Composer, poet, and Soundbeam specialist

My old mate Mark Wheeler the Goth lutenist has gathered together a dodgy band of costumed lunatics to perform depressing but enjoyable 16th century music. Very much like Diabolus really, but with more attitude and in German. Well worth a visit.

The Night Watch
A pair of folkies turned early. Ecelctic and highly entertaining. I've spent many happy hours recording them.

Ian Pittaway
Medieval music specialist who plays a very impressive range of early instruments. Some of them made by me.
Everything you always wanted to know about Kingswinford. If you ever did, that is.
