**EXCITING NEWS!!**

We’ve been selected to play at NERFA, a regional Folk Alliance International industry showcase held in Connecticut, USA.
We can’t wait to take our new songs stateside… and eat pancakes for breakfast. :-)

Huge thanks to PRS Foundation for their support.

First show in the bag!
We had a great time in Dundee and it means the world to us when we get messages from people who enjoyed it too…

“This was certainly one of the best gigs I have ever seen in Dundee in recent years . The harmonies were tight, the songs were dark and the cowboy boots were outstanding”

“That was beautiful tonight, guys. We loved you before seeing you live…and we love you more now. Keep making the fantastic music”

Thanks Dundee.
Stop 2: Kirkcaldy Acoustic Music Club, tonight! 🤠
