The Woolshed Sessions

Armed with my Wonderwarm blanky and a bottle of delicious Rose, I accompanied a hoard of fellow Wellingtonians to the see The Woolshed Sessions at the Dell last night. I was lulled by the gentle harmonies and light, delicate guitars - a lovely way to spend an overcast, but warm Welly evening. The Woolshed Sessions were in their element in this setting and enveloped their happy and content audience in a warm toasty glow. The album is great too!
