Well, that was a blast from the past. The last time I saw Grannies Attic was in July 2012. It was actaully at a NJS gig – the last ever Acoustic Lunch at The Old Rectifying House.

There were only two of them back then but even at that young age (they were probably still at school) you could tell that they were an act to watch.
