What to Expect
Unless by request, there will be no repetition of any single tune, as there are hours and hours of music in my repertoire.
I'm rather low-key and do not force myself into the limelight; I can work as background ambience to your event.
But if you want me to, I also can M/C myself thru whatever set you had in mind or indulge into an educational monologue
about the background of this particular trade of musician and/or also a Q/A round.
Should I be in the right mood to do so, I will also occasionally sing the one or other tune, but I do not claim to be a great singer,
but then, so weren't most historical Cantastorians either...
To counter the one-sidedness of the repetitive sound of a single instrument, I will switch back and forth between my various music boxes
which will keep the performance fresh and interesting even thru a long day.
It is tradition to keep a hat for collections; however, that can either be geared towards a Charity of your choosing or removed entirely.
During a longer gig it would be customary to supply some food & drink for me, as well as someone who can occasionally watch my gear as necessary.
