Live Music Project stalwarts, Nick and the Sun Machine, joined the Thom Worth Band, Hope and He Ain’t Heavy for this month’s gig at the Trestle Arts Base in St Albans.

A four piece folk/pop/rock band from St Albans, Nick and the Sun Machine switch between hard rock and folk balladry. The concoction of progressive yet approachable music is bought together by the band’s four-part harmonies giving the songs a sense of unity among the various musical styles.

Thom Worth (pictured) is described as having the vocal range of Marvin Gaye and the musicality of Harry Nilsson and his music has taken on many different forms.

Hope is a young singer-songwriter from St Albans whose songs are informed largely by issues such as loss, illness, the fragility of life, family and belonging.

In 2011, she was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called MEN Type 1 which has also played a role in influencing her songs.

Also playing are brothers Richard and Stuart Groves who make up the He Ain’t Heavy duo.

Admission to the Live Music Project this Saturday, March 28, is free and anyone interested in volunteering for the event or who would like to sign up to perform should contact Denise Parsons at
