My folk songs are reflective song stories carried on simple but memorable tunes. Sometimes they are based on poems, sometimes everyday events – contributed stories, news, jokes, minor asides, reading, people, and the ordinary – there is nothing ‘new’, it is all a matter of my personal observations and interpretations of what I see, hear and know. All the tunes are my own.
Professional folk performers at home and abroad have recorded a number of my songs on their own CD’s:
