What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I’ll try to accommodate the change of schedule if at all possible. Very last minute change may be difficult but I will do my best.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
If I’m there anyway I’m happy to plug an iPhone playlist in. If you’d like me to stay longer/get there earlier we could discuss an extra cost. I’ll need notice to pack the lead and if you have your own playlist that would be preferred!
How much time do you need to set up?
It takes me less than 30 minutes to set up and pack down. I’m a very portable show and can set up easily with little intrusion into the event.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I’ll usually choose a set list based on your audience and my past experience of choosing songs to suit the audience. If you’d like to request certain songs from my list I can certainly work them into the set list. I’m also open to learning a special song as long as you give notice.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I can play acoustic or with my own pa.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I would be open to learning specific pieces. Please let me know in advance as there will be a certain amount of rehearsal time required which I would need to factor into the price.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients love my heartfelt honest songs and chatty interactive show. They also like having a sing and dance to some of the better known classics.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Sidmouth, towersery, broadstairs, belladrum, homegrown, folk east l are a few of the bigger festivals I have played.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
First aid kit, Brandi Carlisle, dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell, Blondie, the cranberries
