Chris Haigh; Bands
I work with many bands, some regularly, some occasionally. In most cases the size and lineup is flexible, to suit the occasion. In addition I often put together one-off lineups for functions to cover a particular style. Click on any of the links below for more details on individual acts, and feel free to get in touch with any questions.
