LANCASHIRE-born pianist Kathryn Stott, who turns 60 this year, will return to Skipton Town Hall for a performance.

Skipton Music has organised the concert, which will take place at 7.30pm on Tuesday in the town hall.

Skipton Music concerts secretary Bunty Leder said: "One of the first places Kathryn ever played as a child, at about the age of seven, was Skipton Town Hall.

"Since then she has performed for Skipton Music on many occasions, so she says it is a real pleasure to return in the year she anticipates her 60th birthday.

"With that in mind her programme will focus on 'Song and Dance', featuring some of her favourite pieces."

Kathryn, who was born in Nelson, will perform Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (arr. Myra Hess), Grieg's Lyric Pieces Op. 52, Chopin's Mazurka Op. 7, No.1, Wagner's Isolde’s Liebestodt from Tristan und Isolde, Ginastera's Danzas Argentinas, Bach's Siciliano (arr. W. Kempff), Strauss's Ramble on Love from Der Rosenkavalier (arr. Percy Grainger) and Ravel's La Valse.

Kathryn will also perform Londonderry Air, My Favourite Things, Embraceable You (arr. Stephen Hough and Earl Wild).
