Creekside Vinyl has teamed up with Saxon Shore Estate Agents to put on a very special charity gig. The event will kick off the Faversham Hop Festival on Friday 30th August.
Swedish singer-songwriter Axel Jansson and his band have been booked 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 three charities, The Faversham Creek Trust, Faversham Community Christmas Lights and 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 from 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.”
