Description

Price from: £125

Hi there. I'm a full time professional solo acoustic musician with over 14 years experience. My set list spans six decades, from the 1950s to the present day and I'm always happy to add two or three bespoke songs as long as prior notice is received. I can also take requests at a performance (within reason!) and am happy to be the main event, the background music or something in between.

He arrived with another guitarist set up started playing rather too loud and he was asked to take it down bit. carried on playing but not music that anyone could dance to or enjoy. I left to collect the food returning 15minutes later to find he had left the stage saying he was ill but stayed around till 11 o'clock put music on though an iphone a truly disasterous eveing
