H is the chap sitting at the front with a checked blue shirt. The other guitarist, kneeling next to him, is his good friend Peter. The guy whose hand appears to be resting on H's head is the mayor.
H picks interesting songs which seem, rightly or wrongly, of significance. From memory in this set he did Angel from Montgomery*, Saint Genevieve, and I ain't ever satisfied, I shall be released - I can't remember what else.
*funny to hear H singing 'when I was a young girl I had me a cowboy'. Nobody laughs though.
