Anthony Goff – Fiddle, backing Vocals
Violinist, keyboards player and session bassist, and teacher of all. Anthony has a wide range of musical experience, ranging from folk to classical, metal to musical theatre. However, he specializes in pop, rock and Funk/Hip-hop. Anthony first started by taking piano lessons at the age of six, and then picked up the violin at just seven years old. His first gig was at aged nine with a Ceilidh. For several years Anthony was part of the Surrey Youth Orchestra, with other orchestral experience gained from school chamber orchestras. Also whilst in school, he was a part of various choirs, Jazz quintets, and even a barbershop octet.
Whilst in college, Anthony took an acting part in a production of “Les Miserables,” and was the understudy for the lead character, “Jean Valjean.” Back to the violin over the years he has worked around different music festivals, including Cambridge, Cropredy, and Trowbridge. He has played with various musicians from the folk world, including members of Fairport Convention, and Show of Hands. Now classically trained on the violin, he is applying these skills to become a more prominent session musician across the industry.
Anthony has had various appearances on BBC TV and Radio, working on shows such as “Genius,” and “Your Face Sounds Familiar.” He has also supported Nicky MacPherson live on radio 1. Anthony is now part of Absolute band and loves getting together with the boys on fiddle and keyboards for a good old rock-out and some Irish shenanigans!!
