Additions to the “Big Golden Songbook”β„’

During our time of global pandemic “safer at home” social isolation, I’ve been doing regular Facebook LIVE musical hangouts called “The Howl”. Here’s a list of new additions to the “Big Golden Songbook”β„’ I’ve made over the last several months. My solo repetoir has increased to 85+ songs, and I’ll be ready to play house concerts, venues, and festivals if/when things return to “normal”. Keep those requests coming!
