While my original material is the intended focus of my music-making activities, I do thoroughly enjoy performing other people's songs. I have often entertained at bars, restaurants, nursing homes, and house parties. I usually enjoy these types of gigs just as much as listening room-type performances where I would play mostly original material. As a teenager I fell in love with and subsequently absorbed a good chunk of my parents' and grandparents' music collections. When I discovered Bob Dylan I committed dozens of his most poetically dense songs to memory. My brain is still recovering. I've also learned many songs first hand from other musicians; mostly from the plethora of folk and blues players in the Taunton/New Bedford area, but also from the thriving Cambridge/Somerville Americana scene. I'm always trying to learn new songs.

Here is a list (somewhat chronologically by artist) of some of the songs I could perform for you off the top of my head (if you wanted me to).
