An evening of songs and reminiscence
It was some 50 years ago when Mike bought his first guitar and taught himself to play, to accompany his singing. Ever since he has gathered up a plethora of songs and stories from many sources and musical genres, from folk to country, traditional to popular, nursery rhymes to old standards, and has written quite a few of his own along the way.
He currently divides his musical talents between a weekly U3A Song Workshop and writing & performing songs for theatrical productions, in and around Cambridge. There is always a demand for some new musical enterprise! Mike’s latest theatre project was to write the songs for “War of the Worlds”.
This evening’s performance will be a reflection of his musical journey, with songs collected as ‘driftwood’ along the way – some borrowed and some blue; some old and some new – but don’t expect to just sit back and listen, he loves to hear an audience singing and intends to get you joining in from time to time.
