Guitarists Chris Wong and Colin Hinds accompany Toyah on melodic acoustic versions of the hits It’s A Mystery and I Want To Be Free through to Sensational.

Toyah adds: “It’s a lovely show with colourful and amusing stories - you’ll definitely hear some truthful anecdotes from the late 70s and 80s. More importantly the music has real space to breathe.”
