Jo Burt - Acoustic by Candlelight (Bridgwater) on Friday 30th November 2018
St Mary's Church in Bridgwater are delighted to present 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; to raise funds for the work of St. Mary's Church in the community.
In the beautiful surroundings of St Mary'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 church fundraising.
With just one guitar and three voices, the music element of the show very much focuses on harmony, with the added bonus of one or two percussive instruments thrown in - and the occasional appearance of a mandolin. Burt's previous sold-out events of this kind have been described as 'magical', 'extraordinary' and 'phenomenal'. Not to be missed, then!
