Bloom- A Beautiful Evening Of Inspiring Songs Performed by SJ

Friday 30th June 2023
8:00 pm

£11 Adv £13 Door

Event Description


Following on from the incredible sell-out show last year at the Acorn, I have been asked to sing again. Last time the wonderful songs written by Lucy Birbeck were a gift of an ask to perform, as were covers by Anthony & the Johnsons and glorious Laura Marling. This show promises to include ‘torch’ songs (by popular demand) but also moves beyond that from, say, the blues space to bloom. There will be a selection of both original and cover material performed by myself and a fleet of local talent, including the Tuesday Night Fun Club who will be singing arrangements created by Vicky Abbott. The ‘new kids on the block’ band, the Penwith All-Stars will also be making an appearance featuring Malcolm Star, Dale Henwood, Roger Lewis, SJ and guests, giving you a range of the brilliance of Malcolm Star songs and more.

Needless to say, we cannot wait to see you and share our love of music with you all.
