Toy Hearts at Grateful Fred's

I have just checked the Grateful Fred website to see whether there are any tickets for Toy Hearts, who are guests at the club this evening, Wednesday 4 April.  I was surprised to see there were 15 (14 now I've bought one). Toy Hearts are a British bluegrass-tinged band fronted by sisters Hannah and Sophia Johnson, and they sold out the club last time they were on. I was very impressed, which is why I'm going back.

"As well as producing quite possibly the finest and most authentic-sounding blend of Americana of any UK act, The Toy Hearts possess a trump card in the heart-melting voice of Hannah Johnson … With ‘Femme Fatale’ as a calling card, the UK Americana crown is The Toy Hearts’ for the taking". 
Sean McGhee, R2 (Rock and Reel) Magazine, Oct 2010.

Supporting them is Pip Mountjoy, a 17 year old singer-songwriter from North Yorkshire whose debut EP, Louisiana, was described as "a beautiful, sweet and delicate thing" by Bob Fischer of BBC Tees.

You can buy tickets on-line here.  Grateful Fred's is at the British Legion, Whitehouse Lane, Formby, L37 3LT, and 7.45 p.m. is the starting time.
