In 1994, he accompanied the legendary Eartha Kitt in her one-woman show: Yes. He is a member of chamber music group, The Ruskin Ensemble. Tours with them include appearances at the Brighton Festival, the Tunbridge Wells Festival, the Edinburgh Festival, Rural Touring Schemes inNottinghamshire, Sussex, Devon, Scotland and Wales and Music Societies throughout the British Isles.
