Q – Do you plan beforehand to a degree what songs you are going to play at gigs or do you simply prefer to improvise from show to show?

A – I have no list, but I usually know what song i’m going to play first, espcially this last year when I’ve played ‘The Partisan’ first at 99% of the shows. i have two books of lyrics, one for songs I’ve written, one for other folks’ songs.If I’m stuck for an idea, I can look in these, or if someone calls out a good idea I haven’t played for a while I can crib the words.
