STATE OF THE UNION combine the mercurial talents of English songwriting legend Boo Hewerdine and acclaimed American Blues guitarist and songwriter Brooks Williams.  Creating a magical, stripped back and enthralling musical atmosphere, their performances are consistently brilliant, equal parts emotive and entertaining.  The original songs Hewerdine and Williams play are infused by a multitude of influences, from Willie Nelson to Johnny Cash, from the wide open Fenlands to the frenetic buzz of the city. There’s something indefinable and very special when these two artists play together! It’s beautiful to experience.
