Edwina Hayes + Dom Prag at Wessex Acoustic

Wessex Acoustic, The Royal British Legion, Church Lane, Blandford Forum, Dorset, DT11 7AD . Edwina’s beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison as well as her own gigs playing stages everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to The Royal Albert Hall. Edwina numbers Michael Parkinson and Mike Harding among her fans and the title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her 'the sweetest voice in England'. Her cover of the Randy Newman song ‘Feels Like Home’ was featured in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister's Keeper

Dom Prag is a young singer-songwriter from Southampton. He has appeared at folk clubs from Teeside to Devon. He mixes traditional folk with classical guitar to create a complex, raw sound. His songs are stories, folk tales, love letters - joyous, hopeful and heart-breaking in equal measures. “We were lucky enough to have Dom open up a show for Chris and I and were both really impressed with him. Great playing, singing and writing and a lovely stage presence. Watch out for Dom, his star is definitely on the rise.” -Julie Matthews (While and Matthews/Daphne’s Flight)
