Subject: RE: Requests: what do people ask you to sing
They seem to prefer my singing on instrumentals!

Again no serious performer here. I try to mix up styles and periods, but people who've heard me do a fair cross-section of my repertoire ask for and seem to think I can do (on a good day, when I'm not too nervous) decentish versions of:

- Grantchester Meadows (Pink Floyd)

- Sound of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel)

- Dr Syn (Bob Kenward)

- Sara (Bob Dylan)

- Intervention (Arcade Fire)

- Julia We Don't Live In The Sixties (Indelicates)

- The Trees they Do Grow High (trad)

- Banks Of The Sweet Primroses (trad)

In venues where my repertoire's unknown I tend to get asked if I know:

- Dirty Old Town

- Wonderwall

- Hotel California

- Scarborough Fair

- Duelling Banjos

- House Of The Rising Sun

....all fairly predictable. Suppose I'll have to learn the 3 I don't know one day soon!
