Young singer song writers

We've spent most of January hibernating but with two great entertainment events coming up, it's time to step out into the night once more.

On Saturday 28th January, courtesy of Arts for Hungerford, comes Young Singer Song Writers at the Croft Hall. Three young female singer songwriters bring their own great music and perform some covers for a great cafe style evening. Rising stars Jenny Bracey, Hannah Dorman and Beth George will independently perform the work which has been making their names in the music business. Precociously talented, the three young women are all gifted vocalists and songwriters, a cut above the usual 'girl with a guitar' fare. Prepare to be swept away by some powerful vocals and captivating live acts. An evening of rock and pop that you won't forget.
