The ceremony took place in Edinburgh, and we sang our Cuckoo rendition of the classic ‘Endless Love’ at the ceremony inside Dundas Castle Chapel. This is dedicated to Laura Cuckoo and her new husband Luke.

For our fourth Cuckoo Cover we thought that it would be nice to record a song of our own for you all! The song is Black Widow which was performed as part of our show Canopy of Eyes, and we thought it would be nice for us to do it as a trio. See below to have a peek!

Our third edition of Cuckoo Covers brings to you “Briar & a Rose” written by Tom Waits. This features company members Lauren Meehan and Gemma Williams. Sit back with a cuppa and enjoy.
