Support acts have been announced for the Big Country charity gig in Louth.

The event is on Saturday April 26 at Louth Town Hall and all profits are being donated to the Alzheimer’s Society, courtesy of Lincolnshire Co-operative’s Charity Of The Year.

There are three support acts.

Abi Moore, The First Lady Of Lincolnshire’s Music Scene’ and originally from Spilsby, will be performing songs from all three of her albums, including the brand new release Amoeba and Stone. Abi will be touring the UK throughout 2014.

The Warbirds are a popular Lincolnshire based indie band, who have released two EPs, The Warbirds and new release Broken By Clouds.

They have played shows all over the UK, and will be releasing new material in 2014.

Two-Step are a young new indie/pop group from Alford. Two-Step have just released their debut EP Priceless which was recorded at the famous Chapel Recording Studio at South Thoresby.

They spent 2013 playing gigs all over Lincolnshire and are now looking to take their music further afield in 2014.

Organiser Andrew Skinner said: “I felt it was important that Lincolnshire’s music talent was given a platform, and I believe these three artists showcase the quality and diversity that Lincolnshire’s music scene has to offer. It also turns this event into a mini festival, which is a very exciting prospect.”

Big Country have had 15 Top 40 singles.

Filmmaker Adam Simcox will be filming a documentary of the gig and as well as interviewing the performers will be looking for local music enthusiasts to interview. Tickets are now on sale from Louth Town Hall and Off The Beaten Tracks in Aswell Street.
