Thread Name: Requests: what do people ask you to sing
Subject: RE: Requests: what do people ask you to sing
There are several songs that people have asked me to sing but two stand out in particular because of the reasons why they were requested. One was Boulder To Birmingham which somebody heard me sing and who asked me to sing it again because she said that it had saved her life!!

The other one was Song For A winter's night which one guy heard me sing and which he continually asked me to sing again. Eventually we had a chat and he told me that his wife and daughters had died in a fire and the song said what he would have liked to have been able to say to them.

Both occasions made me realise that whatever you play will be picked up by different people for different reasons which to me says that when you perform there are as many performances taking place as there are people in the audience.
