Welcome to Good Tunes

David De Santi has been accumulating ‘good’ tunes for over 30 years and wants to share them! He has been involved in performing and publishing for just about as long as that.

This website has information how to get the music and where to play it. You can purchase collections of folk music tunes from around the world here.

There are also chances to play at Good Tunes sessions at Australian Folk Festivals and venues hosted by David De Santi. Regular (free) Good Tune Sessions continue in Brisbane – The Burrow, 52 Russell St, West End.
