Moira Tyers wrote Sailors Lament using rhythm,chord progressions and melody to evoke the feel of the sea. The story-a sailor returns to find his true love has taken up with someone else in his absence. Such is life! Wendy plays mandolin, Moy plays 12 string Maton and this song is produced by Stephen Blackburn for Layers, Dixie Chooks 1st album. 2016 www.dixiechooks.com

Matty Groves - The Dixie Chooks Dec 2017
Here is our rendition of that much loved Fairport Convention song from their hugely popular album 'Liege and Lief'. This famous murder ballad probably originated from the 17th century and evolved into many different interpretations over the centuries. Big gory....but I guess they were in those days. We just love this catchy driving melody... Hope you like it ! Cheers Moira and Wendy aka DixieChooks Email EaleyandTyers@gmail.com

Rain Never Comes
'Rain Never Comes' written by Moira Tyers (c) 2006 The wonderful Hugh Mcdonald produced my first album 'One Step Forward' way back in 2006. He played the haunting lead break on this track with his fiddle. Bass was performed by the very talented James Clark. I had heard an ABC news report from outback NSW where they were interviewing people experiencing drought. One 7 year old they spoke to had never seen rain. seemed unbelievable and how ironic with the current drought situation across Australia.
