A Bicester resident is performing at a series of Sunday night gigs at the Bure Farm pub in Bicester.

Singer and acoustic guitarist Garrett has already played at the venue twice this month.

The last gig of the current series takes place on Sunday, from 8.30pm.

Garrett plays a range of contemporary, classic and country acoustic songs, mostly covers but with some own material.

He told the Advertiser and Review: “Music is a new thing for the Bure Farm.

“However, working with the management, we’re hoping to make this a regular Sunday night thing, if we can get enough interest.

“It was quite busy last Sunday.

“The idea is to build it up.”

Garrett, aged 47, used to play in bands a number of years ago in the north east.

He now plays in his spare time.

His music is purely acoustic, with no backing tracks.

Any money he makes from his music is donated to the Railway Children charity, which supports getting children off the streets, both at home and abroad.

Every year thousands of children across the UK, India and East Africa run away or are forced to leave homes that have become unbearable through poverty, abuse, violence and neglect.

Railway Children provides protection and opportunity for children with nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to.
