AN ACCLAIMED singer from Exmouth will appear in concert in Lympstone as part of the parish church's 600th anniversary celebrations.
Martin John Nicholls who has featured on a number of occasions on BBC and ITV television will appear at the church tomorrow, September 18, at 7.30pm.
The songwriter, who has produced seven albums, will perform a show entitled Harvest of Hope.
Martin's albums include a powerful collection of songs of freedom, justice and hope, inspired by his encounters from visits to some of the poorest communities in the word.
"These shows are like postcards from places we might never visit and perhaps would rather not," said Martin.
"They are songs from the edge - shouts of joy and anguish. I have been there and seen what poverty does to people.
