The Wicky Wah Wahs are Nina Sawicka (vocals, guitar), and Henry Slim (harmonica).
They sprung from the ground fully formed on a farm somewhere near rural Bristol in the Spring of 2011. A kindly old mushroom farmer discovered them & looked after as if they were his prodigal children. He gave them their musical instruments, and taught them English & how to sing & play. And 9 different ways of cooking/eating mushrooms.
After a few years, with a tear in his eye, he bade them farewell & sent them off to the city to make their fortune.
Expect country, blues, folk and bad humour.
'Incredible guitar skills' - no one ever
