Ian Carey was born in south-east London. At the age of 15 he took up the mandolin and has been playing it almost exclusively ever since. His musical experiences range from playing with The George Orloff Balalaika Ensemble in the 70s to a current position with Royal Liberty Morris. In between he has played on and off with Gordon Jackson. In addition to mandolin Ian plays mandriola and tenor mandola and has just acquired a sitar. He is now wondering what to do with it.
