Last Summer I had some photos taken by the Academy's photographer, Ken Dundas - they're pretty good so they're up now.
I've added to the Forthcoming Concerts page the details of, well... some forthcoming concerts. It seems that these first few months of 2011 will be busy. Oh and I also added in a wee quote given by those nice EGTA guys to the quotes page re: a wee half recital I gave in England for [...]
