current lists of songs performed at gigs

Here's the current complete list of the songs that I perform live by heart.
You are welcome to compile a songlist from here, to be performed at any function that you book me for.


My performance is very much about the 'live experience' and while I'm familiar with most Irish songs, I don't use song sheets when playing live, so if it's not listed below, I don't know it off by heart.

In some cases I'll be happy to learn a specially requested song for an event, provided I have enough time.
