He’s written lyrics and played on over 30 new recordings by and with other artists including Scottish singer Eddi Reader, Kris Drever of Lau and Duke Special to name a few. He returns to Gloucester, having visited earlier in the year to tutor a songwriting workshop, but this time he’ll be performing his own songs, new and old, as part of his solo 2019 tour. boohewerdine.net

She has shared the stage with Beth Nielsen Chapman, Patti Griffin, Karine Polwart, Luka Bloom, Steve Forbert, Juliet Turner and IONA. She has also had the privilege of guesting on two live sessions with Bob Harris on his BBC Radio 2 show. yvonnelyonmusic.com
