Aussie Song Book

The Aussie Song Book Unplugged is a dream come true for me.
I've always admired the great Australian Songwriters and loved growing up and hearing their music on the radio. And of course this includes the New Zealand songwriters that Australia likes to call their own...;-]..Split Enz , Crowded House & Dragon.

I love how the songs take me back to a certain time and place in my life. Warm summer nights hanging out with mates going to see these bands at the pubs and clubs.

So it's time to launch.....The Aussie Songbook Unplugged.

I'll be be playing nothing but Aussie songs all night in stripped back acoustic versions with the emphasis on fun, dance and crowd sing alongs. A trip down memory lane for some of us but also including the more modern Aussie composers like Vance Joy, Boy and Bear ,Angus and Julia Stone,Powder Finger, Bernard Fanning.etc.

You can book me ;

Solo with acoustic guitar, vocals and foot percussion.

Duo with either Michael on a reduced drum kit or Phil on acoustic bass .

Trio...all 3 of us having a great time.
