Midsummer Soiree – An Evening of Harp-Guitar & Song

23rd Jun 2018 @ 20:00 - 22:00


Classical Soprano Anne Bourne and Harp-Guitarist Jon Pickard combine their creative forces to bring you a unique evening of music and song uniquely arranged for Harp Guitar and Voice. To our knowledge this has never been done with these songs anywhere before – making this a unique event!

Jon will be playing original instrumental Harp Guitar music from his new album “Metamorphia” (CDs and downloads available at https://www.jonpickard.co.uk/harp-guitar). This will be interspersed with a collection of beautiful vocal works arranged for Voice & Harp-Guitar from Bach, Britten, Puccini, Rodrigo, Handel, Dowland, Gershwin, & more.

The venue will be at an intimate undisclosed private address in Frome (Somerset) – please get in touch via phone, email or private message for address details.
