Guest musicians join actors for
lunchtime show

A Celtic harp, Northumbrian smallpipes, Swedish nyckelharpa and English concertina are just some of the instruments to be featured in a lunchtime concert in Shoreham.

The Shoreham-based Rude Mechanicals are joined by a group of guest musicians to form the Rude Mechanicals Occasional Orchestra.

A varied programme of foot-tapping English and Irish folk tunes and songs will be performed in the concert on Saturday November 16 at midday in St Mary’s Church, promises Rude Mechanical Ray Chandler.

As well as guest instrumentalists, singer Laura Ward is joining the seven-piece line-up.

The event is part of the Adur Arts Live autumn festival. Concerts by the Rude Mechanicals have become a annual feature in the series.

Entrance is free, with a retiring collection. More information on
