  1. Hi my husband and I met you at the Lostfest I think. In discussion, I mentioned that playing my Shawn makes me see stars and you advised that if I contacted you, you may be able to suggest some easier reeds. I have no difficulty with the actual instrument as I am a wind player (clarinet, recorders and whistles), just the exertion needed for my present reeds! I would be grateful for some advice, thankyou.


    1. Hi Pamela, good to hear from you. The person you need to get your reeds from is a lady called Lizzie Gutteridge. She is an early musician herself and plays for Blondel and various other groups. Her email address is and if you contact her, please let her know I gave you her email. Best wishes and good luck! Sue
