Something for the soul with Garth

Popular performer Garth Hewitt will be playing at All Saints Church in Bakewell on Friday, March 13.

The concert is called Something For The Soul and starts at 7.30pm.

Garth Hewitt, troubadour, gospel singer, protest singer and activist released his first album in 1973, with his most recent, Something for the Soul, in 2014.

With more than 40 albums in between, Garth’s rootsy storytelling songs are influenced by country, folk and blues. Garth will be singing songs from Something for the Soul.

These reflect songs of hope and protest, stories and Bethlehem theology.

Touring tirelessly for 40 years, Garth has visited areas of poverty, conflict, deprivation and disaster, prioritizing friendships with local people and bringing them encouragement.

He always returns to Europe and the US with personal stories bringing to life media headlines, keeping individuals’ stories at the forefront when newspapers have forgotten, and challenging the privileged to share, and to join the protest against injustice.

Profits from this concert will go towards the work of the human rights charity Amos Trust, which was founded by Garth in 1985.

During the evening, a bar will be available.

Tickets cost £10 to see him in action and are available from Bakewell church, Bakewell book and gift shop, simonennals@btinternet.com and www.wegottickets.com/event/295108.
