Crispin C, 3 years ago

Our village club known as Bourne Valley Tuesday club invited Alex to give a concert at one of our social evenings. Playing a variety of music on a variety of guitars. Members were so impressed with the performance that they requested another concert from him

Scarlett H, 3 years ago

Alex was engaging and encouraged the residents to join in and singalong as well as use percussion instruments that he brought along. The music was very appropriate and included old favourites that residents loved and consequently join in singing.
