Sara and the band

Earl Spencer at Thanksgiving

After appearing at the Althorp Festival, Northampton girl Sara Spade’s “neighbour” Charles, Earl Spencer, has become a big fan. He has supported at her gigs in London and invited Sara’s band to play a special acoustic concert for his recent Thanksgiving dinner.

He wrote to her to say the music was “Great…magical…everyone loved your set…thank you for making us all so happy!” And Sara Spade says: “Charles is so charming & friendly: he really supports live music & is one of the BEST people to have in your audience! It was a real pleasure play for him: Althorp has amazing acoustics and lovely, LOVELY guests…as well as one or two paintings worth glancing at during the bass solos.”
