The Talented Ben & Alfie

Success! No flooding, storms or downpours stopped them this time! Ben and Alfie played to a highly appreciative audience at the Community Space on Friday 6th June. An amazingly talented pair of brothers, their performance is engaging and informal – some members of the audience asking their ages, experiences at school etc. They write all their songs themselves, so there tends to be a story for each one. Their stay in Senegal is apparent in their percussive rhythms. Aware of the state of the planet and life’s big questions, they don’t have a whole load of happy songs; but lyrical and moving music with a foot tapping beat is worth every second. If you have a chance, go and see Ben and Alfie perform.

Thanks to Sandra Law for writing this article and for organising this lovely Villages in Action event in support of the Community Space.
