We end our seasonal review of the best of Kirstycovers with Kathy Halter performing the Ray Davies song but perennial Kirsty favourite ‘Days’, accompanied by her Music Box.

Have a great 2019!
Get set for the Bells with Cory and Dad’s cover of Kirsty’s Tracey Ullman song. We love it.
A cover of Kirsty MaColl’s classic by Caroline Gower, ‘a rusty old bird with a tenor ukulele’.
