CATCH the magical musical collaboration between acclaimed singers Boo Hewerdine and Darden Smith at Ventnor Arts Club this summer.

The pair will be playing a handful of shows in the UK, and are stopping off on the Isle of Wight on Saturday, June 8.

Boo Hewerdine and Darden Smith met 30 years ago. Their album Evidence, recorded in Austin, Texas, is a potent mix of Americana and Ukana and received rave reviews, among them an inclusion in the Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums book.

The pair will be joined by guest musicians Sonny Landreth, Syd Straw and Reece Wynans.

Boo said: “Darden and I are so excited to take our collaborative album on tour across the UK this May and June. This partnership holds a special place in both our hearts and to team up and take it on the road, is just fantastic.

"We look forward to seeing lots of people come out and enjoy our Americana sound.”

Both Darden and Boo have had successful solo careers, but Evidence remains a favourite.

Last year they played a handful of shows in Scotland and England and were amazed and delighted to play to sell-out audiences who knew every word.

The duo hopes to continue the trend this summer.
