A Mad Affair formed at a festival in the spring of 2011. Inspired by nature, the Chapel Hill Trio continues to play as if they never left the trees and birds. The radiant voice of Valerie Wood cascades over cadences of Garth Robertson's guitar and the grooving, resonating boom of double bass played by Eric Smith. The happy bounce of ukulele and comforting harmonies dance through their songs. They released their debut album December 2012 and have been touring in support ever since.
