Sheringham Little Theatre
Saturday night can be a time to sit on the sofa watching wannabe singers and dancers on the telly.
But those who ventured to the Hub saw true local talent live as North Walsham musical duo Ron and Charlotte Sayer unveiled their new acoustic show.
It sees them unplugged from their current blues band format. Well almost, as Ron’s guitar is hitched into a pedal board with gizmos that help him add layers of looping beats, rhythms and riffs - but all juggled live on top of his guitar virtuosity, and Charlotte’s versatile voice.
The pair use their new toys and techniques to put a new slant on old favourites ranging from Dollie Parton’s Jolene to Jessie J’s Price Tag. Special praise for their clever take on You’re The One That I Want from Grease and the Jacksons’ I Want You Back.
A new direction for the Sayers and one music fans will enjoy following.
