Spring Jump!!!

Welcome to my website, which is positively jumping for joy with news and new releases including my first tunes book publication. Creative and as ever, decorative. . .


I have started to do more illustrative work too, mostly for fun (see my artwork page) although I have also been commissioned to do some book covers and new band logos.

I don’t use Adobe Photoshop – all my work is done with pens, paper and inks; I am rather old fashioned but enjoy the process immensely.

Composing and Arranging...

I’m composing and arranging quite a bit, while my live performances have been divided between touring with May Monday last November (www.maymonday.com) and playing at friends’ weddings and funerals, both of which I find really celebratory and beautiful to be involved with.

Following the fun we all had in Bangor at the start of February, there are more accordion events planned in Somerset, Shrewsbury and York (keep an eye on the teaching and gigs pages here). . . plus there’s a KT & Friends Birthday Concert Party at the Hen and Chicken, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 1JF on my birthday, Friday 27th May.

It’s a free event with donations welcomed towards Alzheimers UK and The Samaritans. This year marks my 27th year of being a professional musician so I’m having a bit of a party. Ticket reservations will be available from this website soon.
