My pals the WookaLadies are trying to fund an ambitious second album this summer. I’ve heard the songs – they’re fantastic. They have a terrific analogue studio booked and are running a 40-day Kickstarter campaign to try and get £4,000 – half the funds needed.
Here are 3 1/2 of the 5 Wookas playing recently at a festival in Nottingham – their first GB performance, and hopefully the first of many. I say 3 1/2 because Sharon (banjo/lead guitar) couldn’t make it and Clare (normally flute, violin, guitar, mandolin, concertina etc etc) had broken a finger and could not play any of her usual instruments – so learned versions of her parts and Sharon’s parts on piano. Amazing.
