Mark Morriss, frontman of The Bluetones will headline the evening that will be raising funds for the Priscilla Bacon Hospice Appeal and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Mark will play an intimate acoustic set featuring songs from his solo material and classics from The Bluetones including Slight Return, If, Marblehead Johnson, Bluetonic and more.
The night will also include DJ sets from Common People DJs, a 90's music memorabilia raffle and giveaways. All proceeds from the event will go to the two charities and to hosts Open Youth Trust, which works with the county’s young people.
The Priscilla Bacon Hospice Appeal aims to raise £12.5m to build a much-needed new hospice in Norwich. The new 24-bed facility will transform end-of-life care for those terminally ill in Norfolk and Waveney. NICU is a specialist unit which cares for more than 800 sick babies in Norfolk every single year. It has literally saved the lives of hundreds of babies and any money donated will help extend the fantastic work they do.
There are now only limited tickets available for the night. Here is the link:

I recently made a little music video for the title track of the my latest EP ‘Edge of Love.’ Even though most of it was filmed in the South of France, look out for some beautiful coastal views of North Norfolk. My EP is continuing to receive some lovely airplay including The Big Country Show on BBC Radio. Huge thanks to Keith Greentree at Radio Norfolk.

Headline concerts in Beccles and North Norfolk
Moving further into spring I am looking forward to some lovely headline gigs including an intimate and totally acoustic concert on May 2nd in Beccles for Martello Promotions - a live music promotion team running quality folk and acoustic concerts in north Suffolk.
