Brian Martin, from The Music Gallery in the town, has pulled together a great mix of musicians to perform at The Auction House from Friday until Sunday.

Steve Morrison, who will play on the Friday, is a unique blues player and has had lots of TV coverage as he was a finalist in Guitar Star on Sky Arts and came second.

He has had great reviews from George Benson and Wilco Johnson, with a huge fan base in London.

Brian said: “We are delighted to have him open the weekend.”
