What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients enjoy my instrumental skills and the fact I always try and keep my performances entertaining with plenty of humour! I try and keep the repertoire very varied too.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have performed all over the world at festivals, theatres, pubs, bars, care homes, schools and even in a cave!
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Paul Simon, Horslips, Alison Krauss, Jez Lowe, The Beatles, Gerry O'Connor
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I played at London Roundhouse to thousands of people in a gig including Imelda May, Seasick Steve and Ward Thomas. I have also played on stage with Joss Stone, the Levellers and Seth Lakeman.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try to be flexible if possible and understand that event timings can change. Just get in touch and it should be easy enough to work out!
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I'm not a DJ but I can easily run an ipod through the PA so that music continues to play and usually do this in any intervals. If I'm needed to stay longer to play more music, there will be an additional charge.
How much time do you need to set up?
Ideally I like to have at least an hour to get set up before I'm due to start - as soon as the PA is ready which usually doesn't take long, I'm happy to stick on some background music!
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
If you've any requests feel free to ask this in advance and I'll see what I can do!
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I bring everything needed.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc
