On accordions, fiddle, guitar, banjo and ukulele, Way Out West play and sing all the old songs - some going back as far as the 1960s. Discover the country roots of the Pet Shop Boys, the folk origins of the Spice Girls and The Smiths, the klezmer heart of Lady Gaga then thrill to the biggest secret of all; what the Pussycat Dolls sounded like when Julie Andrews was still in the line-up.
Kathryn (vocals, accordion, fiddle) used to play Early Music but now stays up late.
Jon (vocals, guitar, ukulele, banjo, biscuit tin) plays a slide guitar with a blues band and used to do backing vocals until the women stole his microphone. Way Out West is their way of saying sorry.
Pat (vocals, accordion) used to play with ceilidh and klezmer bands until she sold her soul to rock and roll and spent the proceeds on two bottles of cider.
