Happy to have escaped from his former career as a librarian, Robert has been freelancing as a musician since 1989. He leads Sounds Braw ceilidh band from the piano, and pays the clarsach (Scottish small harp) for weddings and other functions. The tin whistle, flute and accordion come in useful for less formal occasions, including his solo concerts for the Council for Music in Hospitals.
Robert is also a baritone singer, and has sung principal roles with both Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy Gilbert and Sullivan Societies, in addition to being a member of Edinburgh Grand Opera chorus in several productions.
