VIOLINIST Ric Sanders, of Fairport Convention fame, joins local musician Vo Fletcher to help raise funds for Welland Church.

The event, on Saturday, April 27, at 7.30pm, will help raise money for exterior lighting at the church.

Church warden Mary Purser said: “This is brilliant, we desperately need lighting to stop an accidents happening outside the church in the dark nights. It’s great that Ric and Vo are helping in this way.”

Ric Sanders, violinist extraordinaire and member of Fairport

Convention since 1984, has played with guitarist and friend Vo Fletcher for more than 40 years.

Apart from being brilliant musicians, Ric and Vo are great entertainers, very funny, and a sheer delight to watch. Together they play an entertaining and laughter-filled style of jazz/folk/blues.
