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.

Boo and Darden will be joined by guest musicians Sonny Landreth, Syd Straw and Reece Wynans.
