British pop icon Marianne Faithfull has assembled an impressive backing for her upcoming SALISBURY INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL appearance - a full orchestra and a 60-voice choir.

The sultry singer will perform with the SARUM ORCHESTRA on 11 June (05) after musical director/composer HOWARD MOODY impressed her with his orchestral arrangements for a number of her acclaimed tunes.

Among the hits which Faithfull and her classical back-up will perform at the festival will be THE BALLAD OF LUCY JORDAN and her 1964 British chart debut, AS TEARS GO BY.

She says, "I'm really excited about this event. You never know quite what the result of new collaborations like this will be but I'm enormously confident."
