Songs Performed with the Tommy Lanigan Band

I met Tom on March 18, 2012 at an event at Patrick Conley's in Providence. I was given an opportunity to 'sit in' with his band for two songs at that event. Tom liked my harmonica playing offered me an opportunity to add a track for the recording of 'The Ballad of John Gordon' in their studio. I used a Hohner 'tremelo' tuned harmonica in the key of 'C'. It blends with the fiddle and flute which are also on the recording.

These are the list of songs that I have played with the band. It is by no means the limit of what the others regularly play. This is a work in process for me. As I am able to improve each of these recordings, I will update this page. As I learn the songs, I will get the piano music and record a version on my Yamaha Clavinova. I invite you to stop back occasionally and watch my progress.
