“I have been fortunate to meet and adjust a  number of high profile  entertainers and professional musicians, and also perform in a jug band (HueGrass), that plays Americana style music. I have real love of music/entertainment, and admiration for musicians/entertainers, knowing the time and effort that is put into honing their skills. My experience in this area, has made me realise that they are a breed apart, in terms of determination, and unwillingness to lay down under adversity, often performing despite injury.”
