MUSIC fans are being urged to snap up tickets now for a concert this summer.Paul Temple, who runs the Luhimba Project, a Weston-based charity, has organised a fund-raiser with a great-line up of top bands.The show, which will take place at The Blakehay in July, will feature Paul's own band Bulldog, as well as The DelRays and The Fallen Apples.Mario and Barry, two of the DelRays, also make up the rhythm section of Weston's Fumble, which played with the likes of Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Paul McCartney and David Bowie in the 70 and 80s.Bulldog has been playing at concerts all over the country since 1982. The line-up, consisting of Paul Temple, Arthur Brown, Jan Macauley and Pete Thompson, plays a range of folk music with a splash of comedy thrown in for good measure.The Fallen Apples consists of five West Country musicians who have all been around the musical block.The band draws from many different musical genres including traditional folk, country classics, high flying hillbilly reels, low down bluesy ballads, jigs, knees-ups and swinging boogie woogie. All money raised on the night will go to the Luhimba Project. Over the years it has helped create a medical dispensary in the remote village in Tanzania, Africa, provided water pumps and sponsored children's education.Tickets for the musical spectacular are now available on 0773 7789621.
