ACCLAIMED British musician and record producer Ethan Johns (pictured right), famed for his work with The Vaccines, Laura Marling and Kings of Leon, brings his November UK Record Store tour to South Devon next week.

Johns is at Drift Records in Totnes on Wednesday at 7pm and at Phoenix Sounds in Newton Abbot on November 29 at 5pm.

Although not officially released until February, the first edition of John's solo album will be issued on heavyweight gatefold vinyl alongside the tour.

He will holding question-and-answer sessions at each of these shows.

He said: "I'm doing this tour primarily because visiting local record stores is still one of my favourite things to do. Nothing beats it!"

Fans at the Phoenix Sounds date will also get a chance to win a signed Ben Howard CD as part of the night's festivities.

SINGER/SONGWRITER Barb Jungr plays a very intimate show at the Village Hall in South Brent on Saturday night.

The evening will feature songs from her new album Stockport To Memphis as well as selections from her much-admired back catalogue.

Barb's repertoire includes songs by Jacques Brel, Nina Simone, Jimmy Webb, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen among many others.

Her new album features a stunning version of The Waterboys' Fisherman's Blues and she has attracted particular acclaim for her work on the songs of Bob Dylan.

THE ever-popular Ashburton Singers are at St Mary's Church in Totnes on Saturday morning for a coffee concert.

The concert will form part of the choir's regular series held at the church by the Friends of St Mary's.

The aim is to raise funds for improvement projects in the church.

The programme will concentrate on water, and mankind's fascination with it.

Be there at 10.30am for coffee and home-made cake, followed at 11am by the hour-long music programme.

Tickets are available at the door.
