FOUR well known local musicians return to The Kings Head in Southwold on Sunday with a project that combines 30s song writing skill and R&B instrumentation.

The Slippers perform a light balance of electric guitars, combining experience and talent to steer clear of swing revival nostalgia.

Singer and guitarist Alan Bates treats songs personally, Stephen Mynott's guitar and arranging are delicate and positive, while Owen Morgan on double bass and Mick Talbot on drums and percussion lend rhythm support that is understated, subtle and heartfelt.

The concert starts at 8.30pm and admission is free.
