Music Bear Unplugged

This is something I've wanted to do for over a year and now I'm able to make it happen! So very simply, if you support the music bear movement, but can't make it to a show, have no fear as I'm bringing an acoustic version to you!!!! Like a pre-holiday present from me to you!

Watch, be entertained and chat with me as I perform an unplugged version of my set with guitarist Colin Gibson.

You can join from virtually anywhere in the world! Pay what you want! About a 30min show featuring old and new tracks.

See you then!
