I also a variety of my previous songs from my former two albums such as like Moscow Child and Turpin. I love playing songs from WW2 like 'Painting the Clouds wiith Sunshine' - all favourites of my 95year old Grandmother sung with Banjolele and voice and/ or old English Folk songs like Sovay depending on what the audience has requested.
