MULTI-AWARD winning duo, Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita, will be performing their latest album SOAR at the Memorial Hall, Freshwater, on Sunday, from 7.30pm.

SOAR is their first release since their debut album, Clychau Dibon in 2013, and entered the UK Official Independent Album Charts at No 16 on the first week of its release and subsequently spent over three months at the top of the Amazon World Music charts.

Catrin was Royal Harpist to the Prince of Wales from 2000 to 2004.

Her concert appearances with the world’s top orchestras span the globe and she has worked alongside artists such as Bryn Terfel, Sir James Galway and Julian Lloyd-Webber.

Seckou Keita has built a formidable reputation as an inspired exponent of the Kora.

The concert is being promoted by Freshwater's Pete Holden of 'thisisnowhere'.

He said: "I am now starting to promote concerts frequently across the Island.

"I am planning to do one a month or so at the Memorial Hall next year.

"I have Neil Innes (Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and The Rutles), Martin Simpson and Martin and Eliza Carthy lined up for February-May and I'm looking for one or two more before the summer.

"I hope that by programming a mix of quality acts and working hard with local promotion we can build up audience numbers increasing confidence that 'thisisnowhere' nights will be good and worth going to whatever the genre or style of the artists.

"Certainly Catrin and Seckou are very, very special and it's quite a coup to get them to come and play here for the final gig of their extensive UK tour.

"I've seen them several times over the past five years and they are really amazing and it's no surprise they have won loads of awards and much acclaim."

Tickets from the hall or Mrs Middleton's Shop, Freshwater, priced £18.
