Lucid will perform at Mountbatten for the first time to kick off the hospice’s concert programme for 2020.

The Island’s popular folk rock band, comprising sisters Blue and Sunny Brown, Ollie Ducie and Nik Potts, will appear at Mountbatten on Thursday 9 January.

“We are really pleased to be performing at Mountbatten,” said Ollie.

“I have been involved in the Mountbatten concerts before, but this will be a first for us as a band.

“We will be performing originals and some of our favourite covers and we would love to pack it out and make it a really memorable evening.”

Mountbatten concerts take place throughout the year on every first Thursday of the month, except for August.

“We are really excited to welcome Lucid for our first concert of the year,” said Mountbatten chief executive Nigel Hartley.

“We have a varied programme for 2020 and we are really keen to keep developing it as our concerts are for everyone and anyone.

“We want as many people as possible to feel the warmth of Mountbatten and for those who have not been before, we want to surprise them by showing what an inviting and special place it is.”

Tickets cost £10 and will be available on the door. Wine and canapes will be served during the interval.
