SHOW OF HANDS & SPECIAL GUESTS STAGE HAITI EARTHQUAKE BENEFIT GIG
Show of Hands and fellow Devon musicians are to stage a unique gig in Exeter on Thursday January 21, to raise funds to help those affected by the devastating Haiti earthquake.
The brainchild of Devon-based Mick Burch, the gig at Exeter’s Phoenix Theatre will see Show of Hands’ Steve Knightley and Phil Beer joined by talented performers Jackie Oates and Jim Causley and young North Devon singer songwriter Jenna.
Tickets, price £16, are now on sale from the theatre box office on (01392) 667080 www.exeterphoenix.org.uk
Doors will open at 7.30pm for the 8pm gig.
Says Mick: “It will bring together some of the West Country’s finest musicians – between them they are nominated for seven awards at next month’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. I was very lucky to find all of them available and able to offer their time.”
