Mandolin Music CD now available!

The mandolin has always been popular on my gigs and busks and I’ve had many requests to make a cd, so here is a collection of tunes that always seemed to be well received. I try to play the mandolin in the traditional Italian style and with my own arrangement to the tunes.

The recordings have been made as you would hear them ‘live’ with no studio trickery. The backing tracks have been custom created by me, using a computer software program.



Please contact me if you would like a copy. Only £5 of which £1 will be going to a local cancer charity. Free postage !!
