Saving St Mary's - candlelit concert by Tobiah

Acoustic singer/songwriter Tobiah has agreed to put on a candlelit concert in St Mary's Chithurst at 7:30 pm on 1st April 2017, in aid of the roof fund for St Mary's Chithurst.

'This tranquil 11th-century country church by the River Rother is my favourite peaceful place,' says Tobiah. 'The door is always open and I am delighted to be asked to help with its preservation. St Mary's must top the list as the most magical and special venue'

Tobiah is known for her 'Beautiful and natural voice' (BBC Radio Sussex), poignant lyrics and touching hearts with life-affirming stories of love and endurance.

'Tobiah's music is beautiful, light, filled with meaning, symbolism and personal revelation' —Baruch Zeichner, Broadcaster, Paradigms.life

'The UK must be a proud nation today. Tobiah is taking the world hostage and we don't want her to let us go' —Indie Showcase

For the concert, Tobiah will be joined by acclaimed piano accordionist, Colette O'Leary, whose virtuosity delights audiences worldwide.

'Colette shows outstanding instrumental prowess with a spirit and joie de vivre that is truly captivating' — Celtic Connections Festival, Glasgow

Seats will be free but there will be an opportunity at the end of the concert to donate to help preserve this ancient English treasure, when we hope that you will join us for complimentary wine and nibbles.
