LIFE IN THE MUSIC :
A journey through life featuring self-penned comedy songs and ballads …plus a few well known numbers for members to join in.
I explain a bit about the instruments I have brought with me - which includes several guitars, ukulele and mandolin.
With lots of amusing chat and nostalgic anecdotes, this has become a very popular talk.
UNDER THE INFLUENCE :
My ‘second’ talk is called ‘Under the Influence’ and again features an array of instruments,
I sing and play a selection of different musical pieces which have shaped my repertoire, playing and life….and explain why!!
Lots of well known songs by the The Beatles, Bob Dylan, John Denver (to name but a few) - plus a few of my own.

My third talk features songs and instrumentals written and recorded over the last century.
Singing at least one song from each decade – the members can try and guess the year, the song, the artist, the musical……
There have been some amazing songs written since 1920 – and on this talk I feature some well known classics – plus a few long forgotten gems!!
