A LOCAL musician is hoping the weather won’t dampen the mood as she returns to Darton for another concert.

Elizabeth Charlesworth will be working alongside piano player Jonathan Bickley when she arrives at All Saints’ Church in Darton on February 11.

It’s the second time in the last few months the duo have impressed local residents after performing in October, but Elizabeth admits she’s hoping the weather will be better this time.

She told the Chronicle: “The River Dearne came very close to flowing down Darton High Street that night in October, the evening of our planned concert in the church.

“It was not a night to be venturing out so no surprise that there were only a few to hear our ‘Songs of Home’.

“We did the concert anyway but promised to repeat it in better weather.

“Let’s hope for a drier afternoon on the Sunday at 4pm.”

It’s set to be an amazing afternoon of entertainment, and Elizabeth is encouraging locals to get involved.

“We have songs by Puccini and Ernesto de Curtis, best known for ‘Come Back to Sorrento’,” she added.

“I can promise that you will go away humming catchy tunes.”

The duo will also be performing at the De Morgan Museum in Cawthorne on the first weekend of March.
