Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow – 31 Jan 2013

It never ceases to amaze me when it comes to how much talent we have around in A.G.I have had notice of a special event coming up in the next week. Local man Adam Green and his partner D’lys are to appear on John Govier’s show on Radio Devon on February 8th at 11am and later on the same day they will be giving a free concert at the Fishermans Rest starting at 8.30pm. The evening is being sponsored by Aveton Gifford Cricket Club. Adam grew up in the village and has performed several times at the Fishermans. D’lys is a singer-songwriter, brought up in London and will be singing her own compositions together with some cover versions of some well known songs too. She has a unique sound and expressive voice and has just brought out her first album.

Adam is a guitarist and will be accompaning D’lys in his own very sensitive way.Adam left the village a couple of years ago to work and make music in London and fronts his own jazz quartet. He has also worked on crusie ships in the past.He is a multi-talented gutarist and also enjoys playing classical music and has a gig at Hazelwood House on Mothers Day. This sounds like a real good oppurtunity to enjoy a very different night out.

In the Village Hall tonight (Friday 31st Jan), the A.G version of the Oscars will take place with budding film makers showing their creations to an expectant audience. There will be a selection of films on many subjects, I wonder if there’s anyone you know in any of them? There’s only one way to find out and thats to come to the hall tonight at 7.30pm. Tickets will be on sale at the door and this promises to be a great fun evening. Refreshments will also be available.

The Panto season is in full swing and The Taverners Drama Group are hard at it in the rehersal stage. This year its Aladdin and the tickets are on sale at the village shop with concessions for children. The performances are during February half term holiday with the evening performances starting at 7.30pm on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st and Sat 22nd with a matinee at 2.30pm on the Saturday afternoon.
