Songs

Here’s a list of just some of the songs that I perform. It’s not exhaustive – if the track you want to hear isn’t present then just get in touch and chances are I’ll be able to perform it for you. Want to get your wedding celebrations off to a flying start with some atmospheric acoustic background guitar music? Or are you after a more upbeat selection of songs for when the tables have been packed away and the dancing shoes are out? Let’s build a setlist to suit you perfectly. Contact me now to make a booking!
