Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

People are often most surprised by the versatility of my voice and my ability to fill a large venue with no amplification - I have often been compared to Persil - Small but Mighty!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Wiltshire Music Centre, Bradford on Avon Hall for Cornwall, Truro The Minack, Cornwall The Draper's Hall, London Bath Abbey The Forum, Bath St George's Hall, Bristol Many smaller local churches for weddings and funerals.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

A Charity Auction and Dinner for a military Charity held at The Drapers Hall in London. The event raised a fantastic £60,000 for the incredible charity.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

That is not a problem. I always try to be as flexible as possible. I have my own transport so a timing change is usually easy to accommodate.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually about 10 minutes! Depending on the venue, it is useful to have a quick soundcheck and work out logistics surrounding where you would like me to be. If I am bringing backing tracks then this may add on 10 minutes.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Of course. My set list is just a small snapshot of the repertoire I have available so do ask if you'd like something that doesn't appear.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely. I am also more than willing to learn new repertoire if you have something specific in mind. Ideally, I would need about a week to learn a new piece to a high enough standard.
