Christmas Songs

I performed at Paddock Wood WI’s Christmas meeting in 2016.  The playlist was:

  • When a Child is Born
  • Little Donkey
  • Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
  • The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
  • Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!
  • Merry Christmas Everybody

Please follow these links to my Soundcloud page:

How Long Will I Love You  This is a cover of the Ellie Goulding song (which in itself was a Waterboys cover.)  Lovely song which I played at my wedding – it’s “Our Tune!”

Songbird  I love this song.  Originally written and performed by Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac, I personally discovered it when my daughter performed it for her end-of-primary-school music production.  I loved it so much I chose to learn it myself.  I played it at my wedding but its lyrics make it equally suitable to be sung at a funeral.

Lilac Wine  I recorded this, live in a practice room at college, as part of my music course assessment.  Please forgive the quality of the recording.  It is a Jeff Buckley cover, which I feel would be particularly suitable for a funeral service.

We Are The People is a cover of the Empire of the Sun song.  I was asked to provide vocals for a K College Music Technology students’ project and this was the result!
