The Ribble Valley Music Festival was in full swing when the St Mary’s Centre in Clitheroe was converted into a night club setting for an evening of popular songs and jazz starring international singer, songwriter and saxophonist AJ Brown and his trio along with guest artists including Eric Ainsworth.

The next fundraising event of the festival demonstrates the diversity of music in the programme when the Pendle Piano Trio perform at St Leonard Church, Downham, at 2 pm on Sunday afternoon, July 19th, making this an idyllic summer afternoon in a beautiful location.

The trio is made up of Paul Greenhalgh on piano, Robert Buller on cello and the effervescent Gaynor Sutcliffe on violin. They are professional musicians who perform with major classical orchestras such as The Hallé, Opera North and the BBC Philharmonic and will perform best loved classics and more with an informal approach bringing their fun, flair and virtuosity to demonstrate their skill and ability to provide a diverse and entertaining afternoon of music for all to enjoy.

Tickets for the concert are £8 and can be obtained from Roy Porter Butchers, Chatburn, or calling 01200 440925, 01200 441484 or 01254 384893. All proceeds will be donated to the church.

There is a post concert afternoon tea deal for a separate £5 at The Assheton Arms available for ticket holders. Call any of the numbers above for further details on this.
