Acoustic Covers

So what's on offer?

  • Graham plays a wide selection of songs from 50s to the 90s; some mellow, some upbeat and always ready for a great singalong.
  • Graham draws from a wide range of genres; soft rock, pop, singer/songwriters, folk.
  • If you are looking for an ‘up-beat’ session, songs will be included from The Kinks, Oasis, Paul Weller, The Rolling Stones.
  • If you prefer a more mellow set of popular songs Bob Dylan, America, Cat Stevens, Neil Young.  
  • A third set exists which is more in the “Folk World” and has many of Graham’s own compositions.
  • The songs played are tailored to the requirement of your event and audience.
  • Over the years I have hosted and continue to host regular Open Mic Nights at various locations.

“Our recent party was a combination of an 18th and 50th for me and my son, Graham played two live acoustic sets of songs we all knew and my son supplied party music via an iPad and Graham's gear. A great night was had by all”.

Mrs Janice D.

"Graham Corbould, chilled out and smiling. One of the nicest, most laid back musicians I've ever met, this man makes any room with more than three people in it into a party by getting out his guitar and singing the kind of songs you can sing along.”

Kate’s Sunshine Cast (Inernet Radio)
