We were delighted to welcome back to the show 
Maz Totterdell who is receiving some acclaim and lots of airplay for her album Sweep. She is also gaining lots of new fans through her live performances, solo and with her band.

Maz performed live 3 songs that appear on her album: Heart In Your Pocket, Willow and Little Puzzle. From Sweep we played Kaleidoscope. From the album Postcards From Within: Singer-Songwriters From Mid Devon And Beyond, we played the contribution by Maz, Never Say Never.
