Singer-songwriter and SUR in English columnist Peter Edgerton was among the artists who took part in a charity concert on Saturday in Malaga. The Eduardo Ocón stage in the city's park was the venue for the event organised by the Málaga en Vivo association to raise funds to assist the work of the Vicente Ferrer Foundation in India. Edgerton was followed on stage by the Queen tribute band Queen of Magic and veteran rock band No Picky. The Vicente Ferrer fair trade stall, selling items made by women the foundation helps to keep in employment in Anantapur, did a “roaring trade” explained Edgerton. The musician thanked everyone who went along to enjoy the music and support the cause.
