HEY LORETTA! is at the Nite Owl

It's our first show at the Nite Owl in London, come join us for an evening of hardcore country music, the best Bourbon selection in town and some fancy wall paper too - what more can you ask for in a friday night? HEY LORETTA! trio tonight, featuring the incredible Heddle on guitar and Tommy "the pocket" Dunphy on the doghouse bass. Good times!

A Rizdale and A Ridsdale walk into a bar....

Tonight I'm excited to be playing with one of my favourite local songwriters, Frank Ridsdale, at Fitzray's. We'll be playing some tunes from our own songbooks as well as a mix of Nick Lowe, James Hunter, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison with a bunch of Pogues and other Irish tunes thrown in. It's going to be fun and I hope to see you guys out there! Music starts at 10pm!
