Chris has liked the sound of the flute since an early age, despite having an older brother who learned the recorder at school. Playing the flute came much later, in his mid 20s. Having not quite realised that IVFDF was meant for joining in at university, folk music came later still with start of Caedmon Folk in the mid 1990s.
Chris joined "The Redheughers" in 2000 and moved on to "The Angels" in 2010. After all, it wouldn't be a folk band without at least one beard!
