The Sounds of Louth gig will help families

A SOUNDS of Louth charity gig is to be held at the Golden Fleece pub.

Local artists performing are folk duo Andy Nisbet and Jonathan Jeffrey, vocalist Ema Leese and Michael Nicholls with funky electric and acoustic sounds supported by vocalist Kat Bishop.

The gig for Home-Start East Lindsey, which supports over 120 families each year, takes place on Friday September 2.

Singr Kat Bishop, who is also a Home-Start fundraising volunteer, said: “This is a great opportunity to showcase some local talent, there are so many unknown local artists out there with a diverse range of musical styles and talents and not enough venues or events for people to hear them.

“This is our second gig this year and the response to hearing local artists at such events has been fantastic. This event features just Louth artists and we hope our efforts will encourage others to take part in such events.”

The families who receive support from the charity are experiencing difficulties for many reasons including post-natal illness, disability, bereavement, illness of a parent or child, or social isolation.

Kathryn Laverack, Trustee and Chair of Home-Start East Lindsey’s Community Fundraising Committee, said: “This promises to be a great way to spend a Friday evening with superb live music and good company and a chance to raise some much needed funds for local families and children.”

Tickets for the charity gig are available at £3 in advance from Off the Beaten Tracks Records in Aswell Street, on 01507 607077 or for £4 on the door.
