Marie will also be joined on stage by her band, The Purple Shoes, whose quirky, upbeat blend of folk and Americana music has won popularity with audiences across the south coast.

The performance will showcase a variety of songs, including tracks from the album and covers of songs groups including The Travelling Wilburys, Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
