Boo Hewerdine and Darden Smith met 30 years ago, introduced by a publisher they wrote songs together for four days in London. The results secured them a record deal with Ensign Records. Only a short while later they found themselves in Austin, Texas recording the album Evidence.

To celebrate this magical collaboration that has resulted in a life-long friendship, Darden and Boo will be playing a handful of shows in the UK, including The Forge.

The album is a potent mix of Americana and UKana (for want of a better word). It received rave reviews and featured in the Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums.
 
Both Darden and Boo have continuing successful solo careers, but Evidence remains a favourite. Last year they played a couple of shows in Scotland and England and were delighted to play to sell out audiences who knew every word!
