Two-hundred of Dunmow’s senior citizens were treated to spine-tingling harmonies at a concert hosted by the Rotary Club.

The free event featured the Ultimate Everly Brothers tribute act, with brothers Mick and Terry Page, pictured, recreating the harmonies of Phil and Don Everly.

The show included all the Everly Brothers greatest hits such as Wake up little Suzie and Cathy’s Clown.

A second act, called Tricks of the Trade, started off with rock n’ roll numbers and included songs by Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry and the Beatles. The set ended with a quick wig change and a further two songs from Status Quo.

At the end a special mention of D-Day was made and the National Anthem was sung. Almost £300 was donated towards Rotary charities.

A spokesman for the Rotary Club said: “Mick and Terry gave a superb, professional performance with their own lighting and graphics and the audience loved it clapping and cheering every song.”
