Johnny Coppin and Mike Silver will be breaking the silence when the singer/songwriters team up for a show in Highworth.

The musicians met in the early 1970s but went their separate career paths until 2004 when a chance phone call brought up the idea of working together. Mike's guitar and Johnny's keyboard skills combine in a duo that is all about the songs.

Their first album as a duo was called Breaking The Silence, and included tracks they had written together, covers and arrangements of each other's work.

The singers will perform some of these when they come to The United Reformed Church in Highworth on Friday, March 22 from 7,45pm.

Johnny was one of the founder members of Decameron, the folk rock band that came to fame in the 1970s. Since they split in 1976 he has performed as a solo artist, and won a huge following, particularly for his Christmas shows. He has recorded more than 12 albums including Edge of the Day with the poet Laurie Lee.

Mike was one of the first artists to be signed to Elton John's Rocket Records and he is always in demand for festival, clubs and art centres all over Europe. His song Not A Matter of Pride was taken up by Terry Wogan on his BBC Radio 2 early morning show.

Tickets to the concert are £14 including a glass of wine and they are available from 01793 762070.
