I've had big debates, mostly with Ben Daglish, about whether music really needs words. As a songwriter, I can't help but put words to music, and anyway sometimes the words come first.
However, this is a selection of pieces which have no words at all. There are simple folk-style tunes of mine, some not so simple tunes of mine, and some pieces by other musicians known and unknown. Some will be already included in albums on the Songs page, notably Concerning the Waves and Firefolk.
In the days when I played the brass-strung harp, I recorded two albums with that instrument alone, which are now available here in digital for the first time. (Busker only, Harpers Solstice coming soon)
The rest are individual pieces which I enjoy playing, and are there for anyone to play who wants to, in the time-honoured way. If you do use them yourself, please just credit me as their maker if they're mine, and let me know if you do, I do like to hear where they get to..
I hope to get round to writing out the dots, and as I do that I'll put them up here, but in the meantime take them by ear. If you particularly want the dots for a particular tune, get firstname.lastname@example.org and it will spur me on to getting it written out.
