Claydon Connor to perform as part of hospice social programme

Talented Island singer/songwriter Claydon Connor is set to perform as part of Earl Mountbatten Hospice’s Social Programme next week (Thursday, 1 June 2017)
Claydon draws his influence from some of the world’s finest Americana artists and has worked closely with award-winning Canadian producer Murray Pulver (Bros.Landreth) for much of 2016 on his latest five track EP (to be released).
Claydon regularly achieves success on the road with an instant stage presence, engaging his audience from start to finish at the likes of the O2 for Country to Country festival as well as live sessions on both BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio. Other highlights include supporting Nashville duo 'Striking Matches' as well as making a mark overseas with a trip to Nashville where he showcased 'Under The Big Sky' to the likes of 'The Bluebird', 'Belcourt Taps' & 'The Wild Horse Saloon' along with several other great 'Music City' venues. This year he has opened for Nashville's Sarah Darling, supported 80's pop/soul legend Andrew Roachford as part of his latest tour as well as one of Nashville’s fastest rising talents Cale Tyson and more recently the fabulous Sara Watkins. Claydon also secured slots at several UK festivals including the legendary Isle of Wight Festival. 
Claydon will perform as part of the well-established Earl Mountbatten social programme, which aims to show that the hospice is a normal and welcoming place where people can share experiences and create good memories together. Doors are open to anyone to come along and enjoy concerts, an art gallery, delicious cuisine or simply to find out more about the work of the hospice and its services.
Nigel Hartley, Chief Executive, said: “We are very fortunate to have had a very high calibre of musicians perform for us during our concert series so far, and Claydon is no exception! People are consistently and pleasantly surprised by what they find when they come to one of our concerts. They often comment about the great hospitality and relaxed atmosphere, and we hope that more people experience this as it helps to really break down the misconceptions of what a hospice is like. Come and be surprised!”
Live music, delicious canapés and wine can be enjoyed for just £10 and, although tickets can be booked by phoning 217320, you can also just turn up on the door. The concert starts at 7:30pm in the lounge area of the John Cheverton Centre.
