I would like to link up with other experienced Early Music musicians in the South Somerset or Dorset area, not necessarily for concerts but for the enjoyment of playing with others. I am a professional pianist and teacher. I have a portable piano with a “Harpsichord”!

Professional percussionist with over 30 years experience as a working musician is looking to collaborate with interesting early music projects.  I specialise in Middle Eastern percussion instruments such as various frame drums/goblet drums, amongst many others.

I’m thinking along the lines of groups such as Laberintos Ingeniosos, but am open to any creative projects that require interesting/unusual percussion.  Please contact Dean at
