Everyone’s favourite rhyming taxi driver, Doug Verrill, teases us once more with his wicked humour and just-about-gets-away-with-it knack with rhyming couplets. Visitant return with their lilting, jazzy interpretations of classic songs and a few well-crafted originals. And by way of contrast, the grand old man of Toft House, Mike Cotton, will charm us again with his “unplugged” rich baritone. Happy Christmas music lovers!
