Willy, best known for his partnership with John Otway, has had a long and varied career including tours with artists as diverse as Madness and Steeleye Span. The group’s singer, Jane Williams,has just recently finished performing on Van Morrison’s latest album, and is a wonderful new addition to the ensemble. Her effortless but highly emotive vocals draw you in and leave you wanting more. Advance tickets £12 from www.wegottickets.com/event/429602 £15 on door.
