A classical guitar ensemble with links to Boston is set to perform a charity gig at the town’s Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre.

Solo Classical Guitar Ensemble of South Lincolnshire will play the venue this Saturday, March 18, with proceeds going to Boston and South Holland Branch of the MS Society.

The group is now approaching its fifth year and has 13 members ranging from the age of 12 to 75.

Earl Marsh, from Boston, leads the group, with musical arrangement from Leon Edinboro, from Grantham.

The group rehearses twice a month in Boston, and also in Sleaford.

Members come from Boston, as well as Sleaford, Grantham and even Derbyshire.

A spokesman for the group said: “The Solo Classical Guitar Ensemble is a group of accomplished amateur musicians who are passionate about making music with the classical guitar.”

They regularly perform in venues across the county, including several gigs in Boston and Sleaford and have previously fund raised for the Butterfly Hospice Trust and the St Barnabas Hospice.

Their music repertoire ranges from traditional folk and classical, to contemporary pop.

The gig at Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre, in the Revue Bar, starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £8.

They are available from www.blackfriarsartscentre.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01205 363108.

There is a small booking fee with tickets purchased online.
