Seasons Greetings to live acoustic music lovers

Thanks to the audience for another fun music year

The last gig of the year will be at The Minster Arms in Wimborne; A great opportunity to wish the audience ‘seasons greetings’ and ‘thanks for enjoying the music’ – in a lovely rural chic music venue with great food and jolly nice staff.


It will be interesting to see what sort of song requests I get. The last few gigs have had some random choices that forced me to delve into distant memories. However, one lady kindly only requested all my songs all night long. Luckily, I know those songs! ‘Waiting In The Wings’ stills seems to be favoured; even in noisier pubs you can sense a quiet moment comes over the audience. Musicians love a listening audience! Then later in the evening we can notch up the volume a bit and let rip on the guitar and loopstation. That’s always fun!
