I have been writing and performing since my school days, mostly in folk clubs. I tend to go down like a rat-sandwich, mostly because of my dull tuneless voice and erratic finger-style guitar playing, which sounds like someone striking a toy banjo with a sausage. The songs I write fall into two categories - either (1) Instantly Forgettable or  (2) Offensive - i.e. mostly drawing attention to the evils of religion, the tyranny of women or rambling inane dirges about guitars, socialism and me being the King of Galway, which I am of course, although it's not something I go on about much. Anyway, book me to play at your venue for Chrissakes, send me a mail saying where and when...stuff like that

  • I will make your other acts seem so much better
  • My full set lasts two hours, although often a lot less on demand
  • There will be poems, stories, and songs delivered with imperfect pitch 
  • I can bring amplification/PA equipment... if I must
  • I do folk-blues in the Blind Blake/Gary Davis/Davy Graham tradition
  • Yes, In the folk-blues tradition but unencumbered by credibility
  • I expect the venue to provide me with a full bottle of Irish Whiskey for the performance
  • I will usually turn up the worst for drink and fights are commonplace
  • I will probably need help to find my car afterwards for the long drive home
  • Post-concert letters of complaint will not be answered
  • There will be no refunds
