The original SKinfo website sprang from conversations between Janet Woodall and Jane Garratt in 2005, both of whom found it frustrating that there wasn’t a truly comprehensive and up-to-date source of information about Simon Keenlyside’s schedule, his recordings and his performances. It was also a reflection of their scientific backgrounds, Janet has PhD in plant biochemistry, Jane a PhD in physics, i.e. feeling the need to categorize and understand. We were quickly joined in this venture by people who we now count among our closest friends – Petra, Gwyn and Uschi. Janet and Jane are both married and both live in the London area.

In 2007, elated by the huge popularity of this site, Janet and the team launched the sister site, www.geraldfinley.info, and went on in 2009 to create www.juliusdrake.info. At the end of 2009, work began on transferring the sites to a more flexible operating system, and this work continues…

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the many people who have contributed to the site by sending us information and photographs, translating articles and writing reviews. Janet is also greatly indebted to Justin Nye of GrippleSpider for all of the help and advice he has given in setting up the websites.

If you would like to contact us with information, comments or corrections, or if you could help with translations or write a review, please email skinfo@btinternet.com
