I will be playing at Ovingham Parish church, Saturday 1st July, 11am to 3pm. It is a ‘drop in’ (enter and leave when you want) musical event for peace, and to raise awareness of ‘the hidden victims’ of terror. Children welcome, but must be supervised.

It’s a long time since Nathanael has played a proper piece (although he once was playing Grade 8 standard pieces – he now leaves all that kind of stuff to his upstart younger brother, Joash, who went and got a diploma level and loves the challenge of a good Chopin), and as a teenager probably drove his family mad with his inane tinkling, but it has matured into a haunting and serene style that has won rave reviews from listeners. If he plays for you, you will never hear the same precise music again, but you can ask for more beautiful music in the same style. By turns serene and emotion laden, rich in sonorously-toned sevenths and freely flowing streams of sound, it is ideal for soaking in peace and relaxation.
He has played in churches before weddings, background music at events, and live charity and other concerts. He may even be able to creatively include snatches from your favourite tune on request if he knows it well enough. He has also performed on occasion with London-based band Ooberfuse who are impressively active in a wide-range of human rights advocacy, and quirky Northumberland-based singer-songwriter Pete Rider. As a writer, theologian and poet as well, he can do a mixed event of music and musings to suit your occasion and especially would look forward to combining talking on his human rights work or his theological insights at events in churches and the like.
As a general rule, he charges transport and accommodation and then a reasonable hourly or daily fee, but especially welcomes invites from his local North East area, in particular Tynedale, Tyne and Wear and Durham city areas. For more detail, please contact him.
