A piano recital planned for Kirkcaldy today has been cancelled after one of the musicians was involved in a serious accident.

Cuban international pianist, Antonio, was unable to travel to the UK after the accident – he was due to preform with John Willmett at the Old Kirk in the Lang Toun in an afternoon recital.

John hopes to stage the performance at a later date, and he will be at the venue on Saturday July 15 to deliver an organ recital. The venue has several other shows coming up. The programme includes evening and lunchtime performances which are open to all.
