Music

Tony's first success was with the children's musical "Tamburlane the Mad Hen" which was written with poet and author Adrian Mitchell and published by Methuen.


Much of Tony’s early writing after that related to popular music including “Music from Scratch” and the “Pop Songbooks” series written for OUP


Tony is a life-long Bob Dylan fan and is currently writing a book “The meaning and the music of the songs of Bob Dylan”.   Extracts from this book are being published on www.bob-dylan.org.uk


For many years Tony has worked with Dave Cousins of The Strawbs and Tony is marketing director of Witchwood Media Ltd which produces and distributes the recordings of Dave and The Strawbs.  (www.witchwoodrecords.co.uk)


Tony plays piano, organ and guitar and has himself written a number of songs and is working on a collection of recordings which are being released on CD as a private collection.
