Blue Yonder is where musicians Wendi Hunter, Neil Sharp, Hugh Hunter, Bill Greenaway and Alan McKnight take you when they perform music that ranges from early traditional music of the 1800's to present day originals. Everyone in the audience is drawn into their mix of tunes and find themselves singing along to many of them. With a wide range of vocal styles, skilled guitar, banjo, bass and fiddle playing these artists will keep you wanting more. Blue Yonder has played in busy pubs, special occasion house parties and in concert settings with a repertoire to suit all environments.
Wendi has produced a successful solo CD as well as a group CD in her all female band Second Wind. She writes songs and sings as well. A multi-instrumentalist, she plays guitar, bodhran and banjo. Neil Sharp is Blue Yonder's lead guitarist who brings with him a huge knowledge of tunes, old and new. Neil and Wendi are the band's vocalists that will do solos and great harmonies. Hugh picks a 5 string banjo in both bluegrass and melodic styles to give Blue Yonder's tunes a rich fullness. Bill, a reformed highland piper and multi-instrumentalist, rounds out the accompaniment with his double bass. Alan McKnight is a recent and prized addition to Blue Yonder and brings some great fiddle playing that weaves the individual sounds together.
