“I will be sharing with you, songs that I love, and have for years enjoyed singing. Songs tell many stories, so this selected repertoire express different facets of life that we often experience, such as happiness, sadness, nostalgia, yearning and loss, all of which I endeavour to interpret. Apart from the lyrics of the songs, many of these possess exquisite melodies. Our repertoire, which is an eclectic mix of songs, include the American Song Book, several Bossa Novas, and additionally a couple of songs from our British singer/song writers, Nick Drake and Gerry Raff"
