The 3 Musikateers featuring ace Clitheroe violinist Gaynor Sutcliffe and Accrington guitarist Simon Brady of Swing Commanders-fame will take to the stage with bass player Bob Buller at the St Mary's Centre in Church Brow.
Multi-instrumentalist Gaynor Sutcliffe was named Musician of the Year at the 2011 British Country Music Awards for her outstanding ability on violin, piano accordion, keyboard, double bass and trombone!
