Traditional Irish and Scottish music and sing-a-long English folk will be on offer at Mountbatten next month.

The Island’s ceilidh band, Slainte Va, will takeover Mountbatten’s John Cheverton Centre with songs, dances, jigs and reels on Thursday 6 February.

The band combines traditional music with well-known covers, using its unique blends of fiddle, guitar, flute and bodhran.

“We are delighted to play at the hospice, a wonderful organisation we have supported for many years,” said David Weatherston, of Slainte Va.

“We hope to entertain everyone with a wide range of tunes and songs and we are really looking forward to the evening.”

The band has pledged to donate 100 percent of its proceeds from CD sales on the night to Mountbatten.

“We have had some really fantastic concerts over the last few months and it has been great to see so many people coming to Mountbatten to enjoy an evening of live music,” said hospice CEO Nigel Hartley.

“We are very much looking forward to another memorable night.

“To anyone who has not been before, come and be surprised.”

Tickets cost £10 and are available on the door, with wine and canapes included.

The concert starts at 7.30pm.
