About "Wine And Whisky"
Featuring most of The Folded Arms - Emma Perry and Kate Ferris on backing vocals and Matt Steady on violin - this song also features our super talented friends from Nova Scotia, The Lewinskies. Wine and Whisky arose from an encounter John had with a homeless guy outside Manchester's Church Street car park, a guy with bright eyes and intelligent conversation who was not seeking to tell his story, just to exchange a smile and a few words. The tune for the song comes from a 1978 composition. The lyrics are from 2017.
