The Return of 2 Witches.

Mrs Yarringtons Music Club re-opens its stage for the 2012 season with a visit from two old friends who many may know as half of the award-winning Waking the Witch. Patsy's new album 'Stories of Angels & Guitars' is getting rave reviews, such as '... Patsy Matheson stands out for the quality of her singing and more importantly, her songwriting...her best songs are thoughtful, delicate and impressively original' – Robin Denselow, The Guardian as well as praise from The Telegraph and the music press. Also the stalwart of acoustic music Radio 2's Mike Harding after playing a track on his show said, “...the lass has got a lovely voice...this song (Hundred Guitars) is one of those great songs that tells a story but does it in a very subtle way – she’s gigging all over the UK look out for them, they’re going to be well worth checking out’.
