Live Review: Abi Flynn Benefit Concert at The Walrus, Brighton

Abi Flynn Benefit Concert

The Walrus, Brighton

Wednesday 6th December, 2017

 

    Beginning with Nature Boy sang beautifully by Lou Beckerman, this was a memorable evening from the opening number, with many of Brighton’s top musicians gathering to raise money (and share the love) for vocalist Abi Flynn.

    Throughout the evening there were points where you thought ‘wow, what a great tune to finish on’ but there was always another song, from guests that included Imogen Ryall, Claire Martin, Jo Rotunno, Sylvia McEwan and Ela Southgate. Abi herself got up and sang an inspired hip hop version of Save Your Love For Me.

    A vocal trio of Alison David, Sara Oschlag and Emily Farrar gave a heartfelt rendition of You’ve Got a Friend, topped only by Abi Flynn’s version of Let’s Stay Together.
