Presented By ANDREW CLERMONT
The book shows it’s spins between intimate pin drop to 18 piece orchestras whirling out music from many backgrounds from Trad Country & old time & Bluegrass through to epic Dan Fogelberg; swing from Texas to Tarcutta, or immense Sixpence None the Richer (90s) songs plus amazing originals. Then there are all the genres & country(s) music to soar through - Scandinavian to Bulgarian, Irish & Scottish to Applachian & Blues let alone the very fun improvisation when you least expect it plus a splash of Spacegrass!!
