    Mold Market

    11:00-13:00

    Mold Market, Mold, CH7 1AZ

    I'm back again at Mold Market to entertain the crowds while they do their Saturday shopping so come on down and say hello. This is a wonderful scheme being run by the traders themselves which encourages local musicians and live music while supporting the thriving market. My recommendation is to buy a huge egg custard, sit, eat, listen and enjoy!

BIOGRAPHY

I am The Boy With The Greyhound Tattoo. Hello there!

I take a vocal microphone, soprano uke and bass guitar and plug them into my looper to crank out an eclectic mix of my own songs and interesting cover versions. I sometimes mix a synthesizer, piano and percussion into the mix too!

My instruments of choice are a Dave Morgan Soprano (MiSi), Magic Fluke Flea, a Höfner Shorty bass guitar, an AKG D5 vocal mic and a pedal board to pull it all together.

I also write a ukulele music reviews website called Uke Planet and am a regular writer for UKE Magazine.

I’m also actively involved in some other musical projects including Fake Plastic Tigers & Hobbelpaard.

In past musical lives I played bass with flippin’ fabulous Twin Hazey, sang a few backing vocals for Suggs and fluffed my way through a music degree.
