African-influenced folk at Kontra club

Kontra Roots Club returns tomorrow night with sets by Robin Auld, the Louise Petit Band and John Paul Villafrati.

Auld is an award-winning act with a career spanning 20 albums recorded across the world.

Slide guitar, harmonica, African blues guitar and soul vocals all feature in his vibrant sound.

His childhood was spent alternating between southern Africa and Scotland, a journey reflected in the African and Celtic influences in his music.

The Louise Petit Band combine hook-laden folk-pop, Americana-flavoured songs, with witty, bittersweet and romantically honest lyrics.

Kontra is at Kennedy’s Bar in Irthlingborough Road, Finedon.

Doors open at 8pm and admission is free.
