Musicians from Boston, Massachusetts, are set to raise the rafters at a village hall on Friday, October 17.

Sarah Borges, whose music has been described as a mixture of punk and country, will headline at Tingewick Village Hall.

Mike Trotman, of Empty Rooms Promotions, said: “I am very much looking forward to welcoming the lovely Sarah Borges back to the Buckingham area.

“People still talk about Sarah’s last show at Tingewick, when she made quite an impact. She is not exactly the shy, retiring type.”

After taking some time off to get married and have a baby, Sarah is back with a brand new album, Radio Sweetheart.

After seven years with The Broken Singles, the singer/songwriter/guitarist is this time going it alone.

She said: “It’s scary and freeing at the same time to do a record where I don’t have anyone to answer to but myself.

“A big driving force for this record was to find myself again and remind myself how much I love music after being away from it.

“I had felt this sense of loss and didn’t realise how integral music was to me,”

Four-piece band Girls, Guns And Glory will open up the gig and then back Sarah in the second half.

The band have been making a name for themselves for the past eight years through touring in the States and the release of four critically acclaimed albums.

“This will be a great rocking night of music, I promise,” said Mr Trotman.

Tickets are £14 on the door or £12 in advance from the Tourist Information Centre in Buckingham’s Old Gaol, The Royal Oak in Tingewick or online at www.wegottickets.com/emptyroompromotions

Doors open at 7.30pm.
