Sons of Pitches Headlining at Shropshire Charity Fundraising Concert (11th October 2016)

Sons of Pitches Headlining at Shropshire Charity Fundraising Concert

Shropshire Rural Communities Charity is thrilled to announce that The Sons of Pitches, winners of BBC Two's The Naked Choir with Gareth Malone, will be performing at Ellesmere College, Ellesmere on Saturday 22 October to raise funds for our charitable work in Shropshire.

"This multi-award winning British vocal group combines soaring solos, impeccable harmonies and sensational beatboxing to stunning effect, often leaving their audiences speechless".

Since its foundation in 2010, The Sons have captivated audiences with highly creative vocal gymnastics and a programme of inventive pop covers, original numbers and entertaining improvised songs. This incredibly talented group intersperses their masterful unaccompanied singing with sketches, comedy skits and improvised a cappella. It is this level of impressive a cappella ability that saw them crowned winners of Gareth Malone's 'The Naked Choir' in October 2015. Since the show, they have acquired almost two million YouTube hits and a growing international reputation to match, and have "given a cappella a kick up the backside".

The support act for the group will be local singer Libby Gliksman from Oswestry. Libby is a talented 28 year old female singer with an extremely versatile range, performing songs by the likes of Adele, Etta James, Ray Charles, and Joan Armatrading. For ten years Libby has been singing and performing locally on a regular basis building a flourishing reputation. Libby has performed in both local venues including OsFest and a recent sell out concert at the Wightman, as well as across the country in venues such as the Cavern in Liverpool and Kensington Gardens in London.

The charity is very grateful to their sponsors Marches Care Ltd, Aaron & Partners and to Ellesmere College for their help in making this happen.

With a bar and the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for the charity’s big Christmas raffle, it promises to be a great evening of quality entertainment.

Tickets are £20 directly from the Shropshire Rural Communities Charity (Tel: 01743 360641) or through Eventbrite (with a small booking fee) -
