What if my timings change after I've booked you?
This is normally not a problem and I will try to be as flexible as possible. If you are aware of a change to your timings, please do let me know as soon as possible though.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
The iPod music between sets is a service I am happy to provide on top free of charge.
How much time do you need to set up?
Once all my equipment is in the room it takes me just under 10 minutes to set it up, provided there are no unexpected hitches with the room. To unload everything from my car usually takes 3 runs, so distance from my car to the performing area can affect the load-in time and therefore the total set up time from arriving at the venue.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
If you have a really strong idea of what you would like to me play and in what order then I am happy to oblige. However, I will always offer my advise so as to ensure the musical programme has some shape and is not just totally random!
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. All I require from my clients is a space that is two by two meters minimum, a chair (must be without arms) or stool and to be within ten meters of a plug socket. If you are wishing for me to perform outdoors and the nearest plug socket is more than ten meters away I will need you to provide a long extension cable.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, provided it can suitably be arranged for solo guitar. Happily, the instrument is surprisingly versatile so it is more likely doable than not. Prices per special request: Less than a week's notice: £30 Between 1-4 week's notice: £15 More than a month: Free of charge
What do your clients love most about your performances?
That I am right up close and personal to them when I play. There's very little of the "us and them" attitude that can often exist between a performer and the audience. I'm very comfortable with you coming and standing near to me and see my fingers at work if you so want to!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
A recent selection include: Leeds Town Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Zedel Brasserie, Allerton Castle, Wakefield Cathedral, Theatre Royal Wakefield, Carriageworks Theatre, Saffron Walden Hall, Churnet Valley Railway.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Too many to name, but off the top of my head: Maria Schneider, The Impossible Gentlemen, Ralph Towner, A.C. Jobim, Dori Caymmi.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I have performed with Marc Almond to a sold out Royal Festival Hall.
