Vikki Clayton Page  

Vikki has a new website here
We are going to keep the Vikki page here for the forseeable future as its been here a while and it will help to direct people to the new site if they haven't been here for a while.

Vikki Clayton & Chris Conway VC & CC @ The Muzo
1. Farewell to Leicester gig at The Musician

This was a very special gig - Chris Conway opened and began weaving songs and stories about Vikki. Vikki then played a solo set carrying on in the same vein choosing songs from periods of her life and telling stories, before Chris joined her in thje second set. A wonderful crowd, a great gig and a wonderful emoptional vibe.
