Solo Singer And Guitarist - 2 x 45 Minutes

I sing and play acoustic guitar. The set is upbeat but chilled out, kind of folky with a festival vibe. I do lots of well known songs as well. It makes great background music at a wedding reception or a good atmosphere at a pub. Package is 2 x 45 mins of music and I will bring PA if needed. Totally happy to discuss different timing formats to suit your event though.

Set List/Services

I bring all my own equipment including a PA and can set up wherever suits you. I play pop, folk, country, americana and original tracks and will tailor the set list to suit the event.
