Jo Burt - Acoustic by Candlelight (Yetminster) on Friday 2nd November 2018
St Andrew's Church in Yetminster are delighted to announce the return of Jo Burt (Freddie Mercury, The Troggs - and many more!) and the fabulous backing vocalists from his full band, Kathy and Antonia, in an atmospheric night of exhilarating acoustic music and rich harmonies; and raising money for the upkeep of the church.
** This event sold out in advance last year - so don't delay if you would like to attend! **
In the beautiful surroundings of St Andrew's Church, ablaze with candlelight, Jo and the girls will entertain the audience with acoustic versions of his own music - in his trademark positive, uplifting style - and unique, amusing stories from his fascinating rock & roll past. The show also includes Jo's own versions of some of the biggest hits that shaped his career (a stunning version of The Troggs 'Love is All Around' and a beautiful 'psycho-country' version of Black Sabbath's 'Paranoid' which needs to be heard to be believed, for example).
Drinks are available - the first of which is included in the ticket price. For subsequent drinks we would be grateful if audience members would make a donation towards the upkeep of the church itself.
Paper tickets will be available as of 14th September from Sherborne Tourist Information Centre, The Old Gallery Café, The White Hart pub and Spar shop in Yetminster or by telephoning David Gould on 01935 873814. Online tickets can be purchased here immediately.
