Playlist & repertoire

This is my current repertoire, regularly updated as and when new songs are added. I have spent several years developing a list that appeals to the widest possible range of audience members.

I always welcome suggestions for any additions that you might wish to hear. Send me an IM in Second Life or use the Facebook link on this page. Just the title and who recorded it should be enough. If I like the song and it can work for one voice and one guitar, I’ll rehearse it until I’m confident about performing it in public, at which point I’ll add it to this list. The process will take a few weeks.
