Joao filled our establishment on the 25th of April with a delightful array of classical pieces as well as especially prepared Portuguese song arrangements from the Revolution of '74. He gave the clients at the restaurant wonderful background entertainment without overwhelming anyone. All in all, a pleasure to work with him... he's already booked for few eves during summer!

Joao Lima (guitar) alongside Charlotte Kaslin (cello) came to Frome to perform in our concert series with great success. Their choice of repertoire and performance was full of energy and emotion, captivating the audience in full. They not only connected with the attendees through their craft, but also through their words and humour. A lovely afternoon of music.
