A TALENTED harpist is returning to her home town to play a concert accompanied her father.

Lucy Bunce, 36, from Sidcup, is due to play folk music at the New Community Church, in Station Road from 7.30pm this Saturday.

Having learnt to play the harp at Bexley Music Centre from the age of eight, Mrs Bunce is a classical soloist with a day job as Assistant Director of Music at King's College, Cambridge.

She said: "I'll be playing some covers of things like Bob Dylan's Make You Feel My Love as well as original material.

"It's unusual because the acoustic guitar normally forms the basis of that music."

Mrs Bunce said her musical genes come from her father, Barry Hart, who will accompany her on guitar.

Mr Hart runs a music publishing firm and encouraged his daughter to play the oboe and piano and sing as a child.

Mrs Bunce added: "Growing up there was always music around and a piano that was always being played by family and friends. I think if you want your child to be a musician, putting them in that environment will make them want to play music themselves."
