State of the Union (Boo Hewerdine & Brooks Williams) Oct 20th 2017
Other local stuff
Our guest evenings don't get much better than this. Boo and Brookes played and sang their socks off. The material was beautifully chosen and ranged from self penned songs, standards, blues to Everly Brothers and beyond. The quality of their musicianship showed not only their individual skills but also their joy in playing music together. At the end of the concert the audience rose as one to demand more and they played once again. Catch them when they next tour together and treat yourself to a fabulous evening of music.
