A NEW North Devon music charity is marking its official launch with an epic fund-raising concert on Sunday.

More than 125 young guitarists from across the region will be taking part in a marathon 12-hour sponsored "Play In" at Barnstaple's Buddy's Bar (formerly The Riverfront Caf�).

They will play in relays from 9am to 9pm with highlights including popular singer-songwriters Amy Newton and Ellie Campbell, and a performance by the North Devon Guitar Ensemble.

Anyone is welcome to attend the free event, being held to raise money for the Young Guitarists' Fund, set up in January this year to support local students of all styles of guitar playing.
