We’re delighted to be presenting a co-headline show featuring Withered Hand and Darren Hayman!

Dan Willson (aka Withered Hand) is a beautifully original songwriter whose work takes in grief, love, and elation. The music of Withered Hand sparks a heartbreaking response in his devoted audience.

Similarly revered are the compositions of Darren Hayman, both in his solo work and with cult band Hefner. Darren effortlessly weaves sorrow, pain and humour through his 20 albums.

Dan and Darren are also best friends, meeting in 2010 and Darren producing a mini album for Dan. After many years of sporadic shows together they found themselves sharing a cabin in a Norwegian fjord together earlier this year.

Dan and Darren laugh easily together and wanted to share their best work and friendship with you on stage. Expect two headlines sets alternating each night and some songs and chat together too.
