Normally a four piece, tonight this will probably be Simon (vocals, guitar, dulcimer), Leigh Trowbridge electric guitar, vocals and Andee Price (electric bass, stand-up bass, mandolin, bouzouki, guitar and vocals).
Simon is a singer/songwriter of some individuality and has produced several CDs. "His subject is life; love and loss".
Leigh provides harmonies and ‘thoughtful guitar playing’, while Andee is "the multi-instrumentalist jewel in the band's crown".
