Music aficionados ahoy, Danny Laverty his holding a charity concert in aid of PSP awareness and really wants you to buy a ticket.

The first half of the concert will be a real mixture of music from Danny and singers James Hutcheson, Violet Thompson, Eileen Christieson and Collette Deen.

“The second half of the concert is going to be nearly 99 per cent musical theatre, really well known anthems,” said organiser and performer, Danny Laverty.

“To be honest, I just want people to buy tickets. It might not be to everyone’s taste but you can pop headphones on!

“Whether you like it or not, come! I want to say to people: ‘please buy tickets for this one’. This is close to my heart, it means so much to me.”

Danny went to school with Keith Swankie, Arbroath who was diagnosed with the rare condition, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).

“We lost touch, but when it came about that he had been diagnosed with PSP I looked into it more and that really spurred me on to do something.

“To know someone who had been hit with something so outrageous deserves the support of everybody in the community.”

The concert will be at St Andrews Church on June 18 at 7 p.m. Tickets are £15 and can be bought from Danny Lavery Hairdressing on Guthrie Port or at the door on the evening.
