Here’s us warming up backstage playing ‘Music and the Mountains’:
And on stage performing ‘Carolina Rain’. More videos will be added to the YouTube Channel
Meeting Eliza after the show, such infectious energy and inspiring musicianship in her Wayward Band, try and catch them on this UK tour!

I’ve added new videos to my YouTube channel and new songs to SoundCloud including this ukulele cover of a lovely new Kacey Musgraves song. Really enjoying the sweet sounds and melodies on her Pageant Material album.
