AUSTRALIAN harpist Siobhan Owen (pictured) is performing the only West Country concert of her current tour for the Cockington Parish TGi committee on Sunday afternoon.

The concert will take place at St Matthew's Church at 2pm, helping TGi raise funds towards a cross-bay Christian event in 2015.

Siobhan will be singing a selection of her songs from her four albums, including the title track of her latest album Storybook Journey.

She has also agreed to sing a new cover version of The Rose for TGi, which will be recorded for their 2014 charity CD.

Siobhan is currently in the middle of her UK tour. She has headlined concerts in Japan and Australia, and will headline the 2013 St David's Day concert in Los Angeles in March.

The Torquay concert includes refreshments, there will be raffles in the interlude for memoribilia and interesting prizes, such as your own £650 portrait by celebrity portrait painter Roger Thomas, who recently worked with Emma Bunton, Phillip Schofield and Katherine Jenkins.

The concert production team includes Dennis Samuel, well known locally for his BBC career and his professional dance background.

Siobhan agreed to the concert after working with Mr Thomas on her portrait to raise funds for Alder Hey Hospital.

Mr Thomas said: "I am excited Siobhan is holding her only South West concert in Torquay.

"Siobhan, Noel Harrison and Keedie Green's concerts at St Matthews will help to promote the Christian outreach from the parish, by creating a centre for entertainment excellence."
