Join Sarah Gillespie and talented instrumentalists at The Beaver Inn, Appledore, on Monday, March 31.

ACCLAIMED singer songwriter Sarah Gillespie returns to the region when she is hosted by North Devon Jazz Club at The Beaver Inn, Appledore, on Monday (March 31).

With dual British-American heritage, Sarah started to write songs from the age of four and went on later at the age of 18 to busk and play gigs in the States.

She has absorbed many influences in to her music, from folk, jazz, rap and blues, all knitted together by a poetic, streetwise lyricism.

At her North Devon gig on Monday, Sarah will include numbers from her acclaimed album Glory Days, and she will be joined by award-winning pianist Tom Cawley plus the fine bass player Ben Bastin.

This star gig will start at 8.30pm and entry is free, but a collection will be made for the band. For more information call Peter Hames on 01237 421065.
