Denny has been playing live in bands and solo over the last ten years, most recently as guitarist in the music collective Woven Tents writing music influenced by music from around the world from Afrobeat to Ethiopian jazz to Balkan rhythms.
He has also completed an instrumental which was accepted late last year for the Remembrance Day For Lost Species compilation.
