TWO talented young musicians from Ilfracombe will be playing a concert to raise money to help the poor in the West-African country of Burkina Faso. It will be held in Emmanuel Church, Ilfracombe, on Wednesday, July 29 at 8.15pm

Following last year's successful evening, Ruth and Samuel Chapple will take to the stage to perform a wide variety of music, from Mozart to Gershwin.

Ruth is currently studying music at Cardiff University, with clarinet being her first instrument. Samuel is currently studying for an LRSM in piano performance. Joining them will be Phil Bridle, Malcolm Read, Vicki Jephcote & John Wilton.

The concert will also be dedicated to the memory of Ron Chapple, Ruth and Samuel's father, who died from cancer earlier this year. The money raised will go to the charity 'AEAD' , operating in Burkina Faso.
