We are doing something a little different this time, as we are putting on a Garden Gig at a friend's house in Whimple. Nuala Honan will be playing in Pete and Cathy Bartlett-Horwood's lovely garden setting. Entry will be BY TICKET ONLY due to space restrictions, but are FREE and available from Cathy. We are hoping to raise money for Exeter Hospice and the Whimpletons Pantomime Group, so will be collecting donations on the night - suggested MINIMUM donation £5 per person, although more than this would be much appreciated. All profits will be split between these two causes. We're really looking forward to this, and hoping for a dry night.

If you would like tickets for this event, please contact Cathy on 01404823944 / 07970867220, or contact John Griffiths via the Contact link.

About Nuala (from http://www.nualahonan.com/)

28-year-old guitarist/singer/songwriter and Bristol based Nuala Honan, is a soulful woman with a nack for writing compelling and relevant songs. She calls her style country, but if we were in America, she'd probably call it folk. Whatever happened to the Singer/Songwriter section in record stores?

Originally from rural Australia, Nuala spent a year in Adelaide where she was awarded the South Australian Music Industry Award for Most Outstanding Female Vocalist before moving to England aged 19- following her family's musical heritage and an adventurous music scene.

Known for her charming stage presence, she has consistently claimed due attention from audiences in Australia, Ireland, China, Croatia, and UK for 9 years, most recently in 11 English cities promoting the single 'Wake & Howl'.

After independently releasing 'Lost Cabaret' in 2008 with The Alchemy Quartet, the band was invited to play a prestigious slot on Glastonbury Festival's Avalon Stage. She has performed on major stages at several festivals including Bestival, and Womad and opened for the likes of Blind Boys of Alabama.

Nuala is currently writing and performing with: brass heavyweights Smerins Anti-Social Club; bluegrass trio Medicine Creek; and solo playing folk/country. She has also recently delved into two new shows made for theatre, Death & Treason, Rhyme & Reason, a dark and funny show of songs composed about nursery rhymes and oral tradition; and has written a guitar score for Folly, a 50 minute autobiographical spoken word show by Sally Jenkinson. See more about each guise on the "PROJECTS" page.

Nuala is currently in The Woodshed studios in Bristol, recording her first solo album due to be released in May 2013.

Nuala is passionate about providing a platform for peers, and is involved in the running of a weekly night in Bristol, Live in the Lion's Den; and Wattsfest, a 1000 capacity festival in Devon for the last 4 years.
