Four up and coming local performers will be in action at the latest Nottingham Rocks event, to be held at the city’s Theatre Royal on Saturday, September 14.

Following on from the success of last year’s acclaimed live stage performances, Nottingham Rocks returns.

Saint Raymond, Harleighblu, Amber and Georgie Rose, will perform their own music live on stage, accompanied by the 14-piece Limelight Orchestra under musical director and orchestrator Jonathan Vincent.

Saint Raymond is 18-year-old Callum Burrows from Bramcote. With his self-penned debut EP released earlier this year and a rapidly expanding fan base, he has performed his own blend of retro-acoustic pop at many festivals this summer.

With a debut album out in October, Harleighblu’s fresh take on soul music has turned her into a local live music sensation.

She says of her part in Nottingham Rocks: “Well, it’s a massive honour! It’s so amazing to have my own music performed by an orchestra.”

Amber, a five-piece band whose acclaimed debut EP, Noah, was honed during their studies at the University of Nottingham, are hotly tipped for success with their unique sound finely balanced between stadium-sized rock and the sentiments of folk music.

19 year old acoustic folk/country singer Georgie Rose is also delighted to be involved: “I’m super excited to be part of a big Nottingham night, Nottingham Rocks, and to be playing with an orchestra that’s going to be pretty unforgettable and special. Can’t wait!”

Nottingham Rocks is a one-off event, getting under way from 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £10 and are available from www.trch.co.uk or 0115 989 5555. The evening is produced in association with DHP.
