Together with Deryn, Doug and bagpiper, Anna they formed a wee band called Whate're, Elizabethan for 'whatever'. During this season at the PRF they rebelliously took over the stages around the shire to play their tunes.They developed a follwing as their act became more musically diverse and their no worries attitude warmed the hearts of Faire goers.
