To coincide with the release of Heather Horton’s album “Don’t Mess With Mrs Murphy” on Friday (which we could not have been any more glowing about), she will be joining her husband Michael McDermott on his European tour for 4 dates in the UK this month. Collectively also known as The Westies, it is the first time they have toured together in this country. McDermott has recently announced plans for a new album in 2018, following on from his previous release “Willow Springs” and his being voted Best Male artist by our own dear readers last year, the greatest accolade any man could hope for. Click through for the dates.
