CONCERT REVIEW: Spring Concert arranged by Dementia Friendly Todmorden and Todmorden Age Concern – Todmorden Town Hall – 15th April 2023


All the artistes in this show donated their performances. Teresa and Holly (Spokojna) opened with a melodious set, backed by a kora. Jed and Maggie performed some lively songs, and Tony Austin followed with a rousing set. There was a powerful performance from Alexandra Townend, who starred in “Evita”. Despite performing “Delilah” Michael Gill gave a vital and engaging performance that opened with “Oh, what a beautiful morning”. Nicola Mills lent her beautiful voice to both classical and popular songs, and the show finished with a joining in on “Sweet Caroline”.

In fact, what with a lovely buffet, audience joining in, and some people getting up to dance, it was as much a party as a show.
