Alexander’s Live in Chester will be showcasing the considerable talents of a number of music acts on Saturday, April 23 including local artist Anna Houghton, Colchester born Rhiannon Mair and Liverpool’s Tom Seals.

Sofar Sounds performer Anna Houghton will be starting the evening combining melodic poetry and delicate guitar melodies.

Rhiannon Mair has released two crowd-funded records, a hit single in Austria’s Top 10 and toured up and down the UK and Germany. Along the way she’s appeared on BBC Radio 2 and received support from BBC Introducing Counties.

Rhiannon grew up on a diet of Bonnie Raitt, Dave Le Roth and the Indigo Girls but it was KT Tunstall and Alanis Morrisette who caught her attention and influenced her unique style.
