"It'll be a pleasure and a privilege to play a show for my home town along the way. I'm very grateful for the support that I receive locally and it will be great to play in the town centre.

"The Municipal Square is a beautiful setting and I hope that the public come down to enjoy the excellent live music. Our fingers are crossed for good weather!"
