Artist and musician with 80s ska band The Specials, Horace Panter will be visiting Daventry next week.

The bassist comes to the Evergreen ArtCafe which is hosting an evening of art and music on Thursday, April 24, in association with Daventry firm Audible Fidelity.

Horace is as famous for his art as his music after sell-out exhibitions in Birmingham and Singapore.

The cafe’s owner, Simon Williams, said: “We’re delighted that Horace will be joining us in the gallery for this event. I’m a huge fan of The Specials and I can’t believe I get to hang his art on the walls of my gallery here in Daventry.”

Another music-themed artist in attendance on the night is Ben Riley. Selling his iconic portraits of music legends worldwide, the young and upcoming artist paints using only broken vinyl records to create each piece.

Audible Fidelity willl be providing the soundtrack to the evening, showcasing the stunning acoustics of some of their best-selling audio equipment.

Simon Vincent from Audible Fidelity says: “This is a great event for us as music and art go hand in hand in the home.

“With the resurgence of people buying vinyl records it’s really interesting to see how Ben is using vinyl to create his artworks. Plus we’re really looking forward to playing The Specials’ tracks on one of our turntables on the night – we’ll definitely be turning it up loud!”

Evergreen is running a free prize draw with the chance to win a signed print from each artist. Audible Fidelity will also be giving away a set of Denon Music Maniac Headphones and a Denon Cocoon Home Wireless Music Dock as part of the draw on the night!

The free event runs from 6.30pm to 9.30pm and attendance is by invitation only.
