Event description

Description

Perhaps better known as Kate the Violinist. Kate came here at 16, an enthusastic follower of Vanessa Mae - remember? She obtained an Honours Degree at Leeds University; followed by her Masters at the Royal College of Music Manchester. So, you ask, of what interest is that to us? Well when I tell you this is the third time she has been here; you will begin to 'prick up' your ears. The reason is simple. Firstly people enjoyed her popular selection on her glass electric Violin; and secondly, the Fund Raisers were delighted that she never charged us a Fee - 'not for charity' she said. And the sad story behind her charity - Cancer Research - Kate lost two members of her family to cancer, and when her Mother was stricken she determined to do everything possible to support Cancer Research. She has done 3 Marathons; as many charity concerts as she can fit into a busy life with Cruises and numerous up-market Events.; and is currently training for Kilimanjaro in Africa in October. However all that does not tell you Why? Well we arranged a charity concert for her right here in Ponteland, and in return she offered to do a charity concert for us. Here was a girl prepared to traval here from her home in Leeds, without charging her normal professional Fee; and we felt in fairness that the support should go to her charity. That is not all; for Kate is bringing two men in support who also have waived their Fee - a Double Bass Player, and a Horn Player.

The 2nd Artiste to Kate is Pete Brown, an excellent popular singer, whom you may have heard at Music in the Park, in Ponteland. The Date of this "not to be missed" event is Sunday afternoon 15th October 2017, in Ponteland Social Club, where Tickets at £8 are available. Or, contact:-
