Harp and clarsach are found in most of his major works such as 'Liberation' (Sanchia Pielou and the New Music Group), 'Calgacus' (BBCSSO), the 3-act 'Peter Pan' (Scottish Ballet) and the prize-winning score for Murray Grigor's documentary 'Nineveh on the Clyde' – as well as in solos, duets and songs. He plays flute in The Whistlebinkies group (playing clarsach for a couple of years in the 1970s) and has worked in duet with harpists Rhona MacKay, Judith Peacock and Mary Ann Kennedy.
