Ben & Alfie in Action in Littlehempston

Littlehempston Community Space is hosting another Villages in Action event on Friday 14th February – a real Valentine’s Day treat! For those of you lucky enough to see Panta Rei last November, you’ll know that only top quality acts are promoted. This time we have a musical event – so more room for an audience!  I’m sure it will be just as exciting and atmospheric in our lovely old church as was our Norwegian dance company.

Ben and Alfie are an engagingly individual duo of 5-string guitar and double bass and voices. All of their repertoire is original and some is inspired by their time in Senegal, where they were lucky enough to spend two months living with the West-African musician Seckou Keita. Ben and Alfie are classically trained but then began playing/arranging old folk tunes. Throughout their lives they have picked up many different musical influences which shape the music. These include Western and Eastern European Folk, Jazz, Classical, West African and South American influences. Their music has a strong folky feel, yet the textures of classical music are also evident in their stylish and atmospheric compositions. Now with two albums under their belts, the duo are quickly establishing themselves as one of the hottest new talents around.

Ben and Alfie will be playing at 8pm and doors open at 7.15pm.  Tickets are £7.50 Adult and £5.50 Child. There will be refreshments for sale in the interval. Please contact Sandra Law or ring her on 01803 865458 to reserve tickets or turn up on the night and we’ll be selling them at the door. This is such an enjoyable way to support our community!
