brilliant night of entertainment was held in the barn at
Broome Farm at Peterstow on Friday and it was all for a
good cause. Local musician, Becki Neale has been raising
money to be able to go and work with Project Sri Lanka,
a charity that is still working hard to rebuild the lives
of the Tsunami victims and Friday's event was organized
to help Becki on her way. Becki has now realized her goal
and will be flying out to Sri Lanka in three weeks time.
entertainment began with a good performance by 'Kinda Blues'
comprising Becki, her father, Jim Neale and Toby Lovell
who played a range of catchy folk / blues which went down
very well with their audience. After their set, Rysha Flint,
who won this year's JKHS X-Factor contest sang a short selection
of songs, two of which were her own compositions. Despite
being very nervous, Rysha put on a great performance which
was very well received. I think we shall be seeing a lot
more of Rysha in the near future.
now, the audience was well and truly warmed up and ready
to welcome the Broome Cupboard Blues band onto the stage.
The talent and energy of this fantastic band, led by ace
blues harpist / vocalist Toby Lovell knows no bounds and
in no time at all, Pete, St.John, Tony, Toby and Tom had
people of all ages up on the dance floor. As ever, some
delicious food and cider was available throughout the evening
and a raffle was drawn in the interval, during which Becki
told of the work that she will be doing in Sri Lanka.
had a brilliant time at the farm and wish Becki all the
best with the valuable work that she will be doing throughout
