Eliza Acty Concert

eliz actyWhat a fantastic night we all had on Friday 12th July 2019 with Eliza Acty!

Accompanied on banjo and guitar by Pete, she entertained us with two sets of Americana style music. This ranged from traditional Blues and Appalachian music through to some of her own, Blues inspired, compositions.

Mike and Ali Murkin and helpers had spent time decorating the hall and had prepared a traditional meal of hot dogs, chips and ‘slaw, all of which went down well. Eliza’s bluesy voice kept everyone enthralled. Her own compositions really brought out her character – some memorable lines stuck with me such as ‘when you have a change of heart don’t be afraid to go back to the start’. Thanks to Mike’s persistence the event was sold out and with the raffle raised over £400 towards church and hall expenses. Judging by all the favourable comments and requests for more this might just turn into an annual event!
