On Saturday 25th August from 2.30 to 4.30pm Babylon ARTS will be hosting a fantastic afternoon of free live music on Ely’s Jubilee Garden’s bandstand. Bring a picnic and come along to listen to some wonderful local musicians perform in the sunshine. This year’s line up features, Josh Aitken, Alfie & Chris Williams and Karen & Co.
All the acts are Ely based and have all made their mark on the local music scheme. Last month singer songwriter Josh Aitken was selected to perform at Ely Folk Festival as part of their Youth Folk Challenge. He has just released an EP entitled ‘A Case OF Heart Break’ and has a reputation for delivering his own unique take on pop classics.
Chris Williams was front man of Ely’s very own Brit Pop heroes Beach Blanket Bingo. He will be joined by his guitar virtuoso son Alfie to share their rich mixture of classic tunes.
Karen & Co have been regular performers on the local music scenes for over 10 years, including performing at Ely’s Party in the Park and Innovation Music Nights. Expect a cheeky mix of acoustic disco and poppy folk.
Caroline Cawley of Babylon ARTS said: “We have always enjoyed using the bandstand to offer a variety of musical styles on Saturday afternoons and this year we have a real treat in store. I hope the sun shines and people can come along to enjoy and support the great local talent on show.“
