A FORMER musician, who entertained thousands of Western District people during his lifetime, will be honoured at a concert in Hamilton this Sunday.
The Ron Bell Tribute Concert is the second of four Pleasant Sunday Afternoon performances planned this summer by the Friends of Hamilton Botanic Gardens.
It will feature a long-list of local talent, some who previously played with the late musician in his band, Ron Bell and the Ring Ins.
Reverend Peter Cook, who is helping organise the event, said Bell would be remembered with fondness by many people in the region.
“His band played right over the Western District for many years, right up until not long before he died,” Rev Cook said.
