A versatile and talented multi-instrumentalist specialising in “heartfelt songs rooted in a love for people, places and nature”, Kate Howden is being supported on her current “Call to the Halls” tour by up and coming singer-songwriter Iona Lane.

Kate said: “The tour is an invitation to bring people together in a celebration of place, where people gather to meet, chat, laugh, socialise, enjoy listening to live music, joining in and singing along.”

The first concert is at Bix village hall tomorrow night (Saturday) at 7pm for 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £15 to include a fork supper served at 7pm. A bar will be available on the night. To book, call Kathy Doodson on (01491) 577368 or email kathrynanndoodson@

Doors open at 7pm for 7.30pm with a bar available on the night.
