A Luton musician is launching an emotional musical tribute to his late father at the UK Centre for Carnival Arts on Saturday (April 26).
All proceeds from the event will go to Cancer Research UK.
Miles Bayne’s debut EP, entitled Heir to the Throne, is in memory of his father Nicholas ‘Nicky B’ Bayne, who died of bowel cancer in October.
Former Cardinal Newman pupil Miles, 24, said: “Back in the day, Dad played with Sovereign Sound which was a Luton-based reggae band.
“My Dad was the most caring, loving man. He loved everything I wrote, especially a tribute I did to his father – my grandfather. He had it on repeat and we played it at his funeral too.
“The songs on the EP are a collection of the emotions I was thinking and feeling when he was ill, emotions I’m still going through.”
Miles – who lives in Lewsey Farm in Luton – wants Saturday’s performance to be a celebration of Nicky B’s life, an occasion to bring people together.
It starts at 7pm on Saturday and tickets cost £7 each.
