Cyprus Avenue

Tue 6 Nov 2007 (event has already taken place)
Doors: 9:00 pm

Having been recently snapped up by Island Records Wallis has quickly earned a reputation for being a charismatic and mesmerising performer. A self-taught guitarist, Wallis' style is totally unique.

Following a childhood accident which damaged her left hand, she learned to play her instrument with it flipped upside down so that the strings are back to front. Wallis has therefore invented her own chord fingerings which inevitably contribute to her distinctive playing style and what Wallis describes as her own 'special mojo'. Catch her with her band tonight.
