Folk music and supper raises £560 for Amnesty
Saffron Summerfield, singer and song-writer, once again performed for Amnesty at a supper concert on Thursday 21 May. This time, Saffron was joined by Hazel Prior, Celtic harp and vocals, and together they gave us a wonderful evening of folk music. The combination of guitar and harp, sometimes accompanying songs, sometimes solo, created an unfamiliar sound world that held everyone's attention. Songs ranged from some recently composed in praise of Exmoor, to songs from the Mississippi, France, and the land of the Celts.
Carhampton Village Hall was packed with over 60 Amnesty supporters and their friends and we made a profit of £560, including £126 from the raffle. We are very grateful to Saffron and Hazel for giving this performance in aid of Amnesty International. Thanks too, to those who donated prizes for the raffle, who helped with the food and organising, and to everyone who came to support us. As our chair, Alison, said in her closing remarks, we hope Saffron and Hazel will come back and entertain us again sometime!
