Friday 10th February 2004After another successful evening at the George last year we welcomed Mike to the Mariners. Mike’s wide experience drawn from over thirty years of travelling and playing his songs is what makes him a singer and writer of the present. Last year we were treated to a stunning display of Mike's natural song-writing ability and remarkable guitar and vocal style. He performed a varied programme of songs with thoughtful lyrics and strong melodies. Although Mike is dedicated and serious about his work there is a tremendous humour in the man as well. He delights in sharing a joke or a story with his audiences and builds up such a rapport that they invariably go home reflecting on an evening spent with a good friend. Check out his Website!
