Cathryn Craig and Brian Willoughby

American Cathryn Craig and Northern Irish Brian Willoughby will be playing at The Queen’s Head at 8pm.

Cathryn’s Nashville rooted story-telling songwriting is brought to life when she sings, and Brian’s virtuoso guitar provides a solid foundation, but also an intricate decoration.

Cathryn began her career singing with Righteous Brother Bill Medley.

Brian was Mary Hopkin’s guitarist, before spending 26 years with Strawbs.
