Kirsty McGee and Matt Hill have been friends for about 20 years, as they both forged their own paths and careers as musicians and songwriters. Yet in all that time they have seldom performed together. They're about to put that right with a European tour that will take in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the UK. This date promises to be a special one as it's the first time Hill has performed in his home town of Eastwood for about 30 years.

Kirsty McGee a wandering maverick and spellbinding live performer has spent the past fifteen years and seven albums blending jazz, folk, gospel and Americana. Her quiet revolution has gained her radio playlisting and sessions, awards and nominations. Fans include Emma Watson and Director Danny Boyle, whose 2014 thriller Trance featured Kirsty's song Sandman as a cornerstone. Sandman has now had over a million listens on Spotify.

Quiet Loner (aka. Matt Hill) has long been drawn to the storytelling traditions of folk and country music. Back in 2004 his debut album was Americana UK Album of the Year. Since then he has developed a warm and engaging style that draws on personal experiences, as well as delving into social history. He's shared the stage with Billy Bragg at Glastonbury and was recently 'songwriter in residence' at the People's History Museum in Manchester.

The two old friends promise an entertaining and intimate show and a special evening of solo and collaborative song.
