About Dopey Monkey

Dopey Monkey began in 2015 with Danielle Price and Martin Lee Thomson exploring all things tuba and euphonium in an informal concert for friends.

Known for their varied creative output, they draw upon their experiences in jazz, folk, classical and experimental music to create new projects and musical works. They are passionate about showcasing their instruments in different contexts as well as using them as a medium to investigate cross arts projects. They really enjoy collaborative projects where they can explore and share stories alongside other artists and communities.

As individual arts practitioners, Danielle and Martin have established careers involving performance, composition, artistic residencies, teaching/education and arts management. 

Together as a duo they have been invited guest artists at Sergio Carolino’s Gravissimo Festival 2018 as well as the prestigious International Tuba and Euphonium Conference in Iowa, 2019, virtual ITEC 2021 and YABAI FEST hosted by Japan’s FU-CHING-GUIDO in 2021.  

They were Dandelion Scotland 2022 Musicians in Residence for Findhorn Bay Arts Unexpected Gardens in Forres and look forward to beginning 2023 as chamber music participants of the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme alongside percussionist Adrian Ortman.
