"Let me tell you a story"...
Great stories make great songs and great songs are always great stories.

With a sense of humour and a flair for the ironic, Greg has many tales to tell of life's themes of love, work and play. Combining acoustic guitar and bodhran (Celtic drum) with the deep, smooth voice of a troubadour somewhere between Stan Rogers and Roger Whittaker, Greg makes takes you to other times and other ways of seeing the everyday. Come to hear some familiar favourites and discover some you will want to hear again and again. Music to make you cry, laugh and think, expect the weird and the wonderful when Greg takes the stage.
