SAXOPHONIST Snake Davis returns to the area leading a very different group of musicians.

SnakeStrings is a new venture for Davis, and this excellent group of musicians has been making some beautiful music, ranging from classical to soul, from Bach to Tina Turner and Davis’s own compositions, such as the haunting Shiro Sunset.

Davis has performed in major venues around the world and also with some of the biggest names in popular music - Sir Paul McCartney, Dionne Warwick, Take That and the late lamented Amy Winehouse.

He plays an assortment of saxophones and also flutes and the husky Japanese shakuhachi.

The string players — Jane Coyle on viola, Damion Browne on cello and Adam Robinson and Raymond Lester on violins — have performed with several of the UK’s leading orchestras, including the Hallé and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.

Like Snake, they too have backed some big names, including The Pet Shop Boys and Sting.

The concert will be held in St James’s Church in Louth, starting at 7.30pm.

Centre-aisle tickets cost £10 (£5 under 16) and can be bought in advance from Off The Beaten Tracks in Louth’s Aswell Street, tel 01507 607677; Eve & Ranshaw in Louth Market Place; St James’s Church Shop and the Parish Office on 01507 610247.
