Mod­ern folk by can­dle light

West Sussex Gazette - - ARTS & ENTERTAINM­ENTS -

Mu­si­cian Greg Harper is host­ing an evening of con­tem­po­rary folk mu­sic – Sto­ry­tellers in Song – on Sat­ur­day, Fe­bru­ary 16 at Clapham & Patch­ing Vil­lage Hall.

All pro­ceeds will go to Com­pas­sion in World Farm­ing. Shar­ing the stage will be Nigel Rat­cliffe, Chris Den­man and Sarah Stir­ling.

Greg said: “The Sto­ry­tellers in Song con­cert is one of my favourite evenings of the year. It al­ways has such a friendly, wel­com­ing at­mos­phere.

“This year the pro­ceeds of the con­cert will again be do­nated to Com­pas­sion in World Farm­ing. Last year we raised £822 for them. I ad­mire the work that they do to im­prove the well­be­ing of farm an­i­mals and the en­vi­ron­ment in gen­eral.

“Af­ter all, the en­vi­ron­ment is the place where we all live. You could call it by an­other name… home. It de­serves only our best hus­bandry.”

Philip Lym­bery, CEO at Com­pas­sion in World Farm­ing, who at­tended Greg’s gig last year, said: “We are de­lighted that Greg has cho­sen to give the pro­ceeds from this con­cert to Com­pas­sion again. Last year’s Sto­ry­tellers in Song event was a truly-spe­cial evening. Greg and his band were on great form, per­form­ing to a packed house. Play­ing songs from the heart, Greg’s beau­ti­fully crafted lyrics, made word­paint­ings over melodies that kept the au­di­ence en­thralled. Huge thanks to Greg for his con­tin­ued sup­port.”

Greg added: “The evening promises to be an in­ti­mate af­fair of beau­ti­ful mu­sic and can­dlelit seat­ing. Tick­ets cost £10 at www.gregharper­mu­sic. com.”
