Lewis and Leigh – The 4.19

With, sadly no gigs at Wokingham Music Club (WMC) for a while, due to virus restrictions, here’s another track chosen by WMC founder Stan Hetherington from his past favourite gigs. It’s by a duo from Wales and Mississippi and Stan explained that their gig at WMC will last in his memory forever.  “They finished the evening by standing in the middle of the audience singing this track a capella,” he recalls. “It was so beautiful, I was moved to tears” –  www.facebook.com/lewisandleighmusic
