We write and play our own songs, which are typically a wee bit folky in nature, slightly wistful and sometimes have a heart of  darkness.

We've also done a thing. Namely our own album of 14 songs - entitled "Govanhill Moonshine" and released as a digipack CD and at Bandcamp (see "Music" tab) Bandcamp in 1st March 2019.

We also occasionally include a smattering of traditional folk in our sets; and covers derived from artists as diverse as Frank Turner, Pulp, Eddi Reader, Yazoo, Brandi Carlile and (inevitably) The Proclaimers.

We're both big fans of the poet Tony Walsh and are dead chuffed that Tony has let us set one of his poems - "Sugar Spun Tornadoes" to music of our own devising.
