Description

Saxon Shore have teamed up with Creekside Vinylto put on a very special charity gig to kick off the Faversham Hop Festival on Friday 30th August.

We are delighted to announce that we have booked Swedish singer-songwriter Axel Janssonand his band for a one off performance at The Alexander Centre. Axel, described as 'An enviable pop-rock songwriter’ by ​Songwriting Magazine spent much of last summer touring the festivals including two appearances at Glastonbury.

Axel has kindly agreed to perform and help raise funds for our three charities, The Faversham Creek Trust, Faversham Community Christmas Lightsand the bereavement charity, Holding On Letting Go.

"Liz Jeffery, who runs Saxon Shore with her brother Richard, says: "We are very proud to support a number of local charities and we sincerely hope Axel Jannsson's gig will raise a great deal of money for some very worthwhile causes. Saxon Shore is a Faversham family business and it was a family connection that helped Axel agree to perform - Richard's son (and a committed Saxon Shorelet!) appears in Axel's latest music video."
Simon Tyler who owns Creekside Vinyl says: "It means a lot to me that Creekside Vinyl is able to play a role in the Hop Festival which celebrates music and also the amazing town which is Faversham. So we're delighted to be working with Saxon Shore to bring this very talented artist to Faversham for everyone to hear and enjoy."
