TalkingGigs is a brand new live experience that attempts to answer those questions AND give you an unforgettable night of ‘unplugged’ music. Think of it as a cross between your favourite alternative music show and your favourite talk or interview format.
Every TalkingGig offers unique insights into the life, work and culture of an artist, mixing conversation with intimate musical performance, questions from the audience and sometimes visuals. It’s an immersive ride into another world, a chance to get close and personal with some of the musicians you love and hear them talk about their countries, cultures, instruments and influences, illustrating their words with unique performances of their best-known songs.

Her music has been described as a mix of roots, folk and blues using her signature percussive finger-style guitar stylings and soulful vocals. In April 2016.
