A young man of 14 sets out with a guitar to take on the world as a balladeer… If you think it sounds like the start to an adventure novel, you wouldn’t be wrong. Having spent the better part of 50 years packing his guitar through airports and train stations, from coffee houses to concert halls, Bruce Coughlan has collected his fair share of intriguing tales. Many of which he has captured in song. Each song, another chapter in a whirlwind novel.

In Confessions of a Serial Songsmith, Bruce shares the glorious adventures (and misadventures) behind his most memorable songs.
