Quoted by Tom Robinson as being ‘subtle, melodic and mysterious and sounding like Peter Gabriel and Steve Reich having an acoustic jam somewhere’ . They have received exposure on a number of radio stations including BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 . Based around the possibly unique combination of Porta Rican Cuatro and Tenor ukulele, Colin Heaney and Peter McPartland’s debut album on Folkwit records ‘Collecting Skies’ was well received receiving 5 star reviews in R2 and Maverick Magazines. Peter and Colin then are a Cuatro and a Ukulele let loose in a world that believes guitars, bass drums and keyboards are the only way to go. They beg to differ and the difference is joyous. The picture was taken for Vintage Guitars who have endorsed the band and are attempting to seduce them into the dark side with guitars!
