Duncan Craven Singer/Guitarist Competent Reader of Audiences Bringing Music To Life

Finding the right musician, who plays the songs who will create the uplifting atmosphere you desire, can prove difficult. I have been performing across the Midlands for Publicans, at charity events, weddings & family events for over six years. In this time I have accrued a lot of experience in being able to play the right song for the moment. I have added numerous songs to my repertoire from different genres which will ensure a memorable performance.
