It’s not often that after doing something for 24 years in a row, that you get praised for something new and different. Our latest concert, in celebration of 100 years of the RAF, was for the RAF Association Wings Appeal (RAFA) in St.Ives Free Church. Please follow and like us:
Chloe Grimes is a versatile local singer with a real passion for performing in many genres and guises, from local amateur dramatics, to Fringe productions and even 1940’s wartime music festivals.
Ash grew up in a dance school based in Cambridge (he literally grew up there as his mum owns it). His grandmother is also an incredibly talented concert pianist so you could say he was ‘born into’ the Performing Arts.
Sam Pudney is a 24 year old singer based in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk. Sam started pursuing his music career in 2010 and is heavily inspired by big band music, singing his own take of songs by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, MichaelBuble and more.
