The Eden Café will be hosting the charity event Devon does Cornwall on April 6, showcasing the best in musical talent from the South West.

The acts, headlined by local songstress Abee Hague, all study at the Academy of Music and Sound, based in Exeter. They have joined forces to demonstrate their considerable talents and to raise money for The Cinnamon Trust.

Abee Hague, who grew up in Lostwithiel, has been making waves in the local music scene with her powerful voice and soulful melodies.

She will be joined by singer-songwriter Billy Matthews, vocalist Georgia Slade, folk singer and guitarist Harry Vinnicombe and musician Indie Bennett.

The Exeter three-piece Not So Innocent will be completing the line-up with their funky tunes and beguiling three-part harmonies.

Dan Ball, Eden Café Manager, said: “With such a gathering of talent, it’s sure to be a brilliant night and a chance to help such a worthy charity.”

The Cinnamon Trust is a charity set up for the elderly, the terminally ill and their pets. The Trust believes that pets can give companionship and protection to people, boosting their morale and giving them purpose.

The gig takes place from 8pm until midnight. Tickets cost £3 and can be purchased on the door.

A selection of locally sourced beverages will be on offer throughout the night. Bread, dips and a choice of seasonal hot food will be available until 9:30pm.
