Merimac Song List

These are the tunes from which our set lists are derived:  This list is constantly evolving and due to the exceptionally large # of songs (175+) we have below, it's not always possible to play every group of requests at a particular show. The variety of styles below addresses as wide an audience as possible.  The versatility of the band members allows us to play toward traditional acoustic or rock instrumentation based on clients' request and we would be happy to customize our set list for you from the songs below.  Merimac can play full show of Maritime, Celtic, Irish & Acoustic Music.  Many songs NOT under "Maritime, Celtic & Irish" can be played with acoustic guitars for a more traditional Maritime pub feel when requested.  Feel free to email us your song requests as sometimes we may already know them!

Many of the songs below cross genres.  We've tried to categorize them in a meaningful way,  Ex. "Waiting In Vain" by Bob Marley is a great reggae song but we've placed it under "Slow Dance"
