HOLY TRINITY CONCERT with SARAH HINDS
FRIDAY NOV 23rd – 7.00 pm
Sarah Hinds, a local Belper folk musician, will perform songs from her new CD A Place We Both Know (available now from CD Baby). This will be followed by an ‘open mic without a mic’ 8-10 pm. Come and perform unplugged, hear other local musicians and appreciate the acoustics of the church.
Sarah began writing songs about observations of life in 2013 and played them at folk clubs, open mics and around camp fires at festivals. In 2016 a number of people who knew and loved her music began to ask if she had a CD to buy. As a result of a Crowdfunder Appeal, Sarah successfully raised £545 with 22 supporters in 28 days.
THIS CONCERT HAS FREE ENTRY, but the Church would welcome donations in support of keeping Holy Trinity open.
