Musicians and friends Boo Hewerdine and Darden Smith will perform in Ely later this month.
To celebrate a musical collaboration that has resulted in a life-long friendship between the singers, the pair will be playing a handful of shows in the UK this summer – including at the Babylon Gallery on May 27.
Boo Hewerdine and Darden Smith met thirty years ago, introduced by a publisher they wrote songs together for four days in London.
The results secured them a record deal with Ensign Records and soon after they found themselves in Austin, Texas recording the album ‘Evidence’.
The album is a mix of Americana and Ukana and received rave reviews, among them an inclusion in the Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums book.
