Music workshops & performances around the resort with Anne Ridgway & Rosie McDonald
11th - 24th April
Anne and Rosie have been collaborating musically and performing together since 2004. They present their original and soulful songs in an acoustic folk style with a jazz twist. Two smooth, mellow voices with rich and sometimes haunting harmonies, combine with intricate, ambient chord progressions and percussive, rhythmic guitar work to express the power of the human spirit.
Catch Anne and Rosie performing around the resort between 12th and 21st April and enjoy a special concert on 20th April from 9pm - 10pm whilst watching the floating lanterns on the beach.
