    UTEA: FLUTE MUSIC FOR A NEW WORLD : 7:45 - 8:45, Saturday 10th Oct

    From 19:45 to 20:45.     Add this to your calendar:        

    A fascinating, informative and sometimes humorous journey of flute repertoire I have learned over the last months. This informal 'recital' includes classics, an improvisation, some wonderful pastoral music by French genius Charles Koechlin, folk tunes and other amazing repertoire; even a short piece for piccolo and alarm clock! The performance lasts an hour and there will be opportunities to ask questions and have a close look at flutes afterwards.

    Plenty of fun and variety with some deep overtones!

    JS Bach - Partita in A minor

    Charles Koechlin - Chants de Nectaire

    Woodward - Capernaum (improvisation inspired by a harrowing film of the same name highlighting the plight of refugees)

    Tilman Denhart - Wake Up (piccolo)

    A few moments with the Alto flute

    Irish traditional tunes on Whistles and folk flute

    Beeftink - 'Wings'


    Doors open 7:15pm

    UTEA: Leon Hunt and Jason Titley : 8pm, Saturday 21st Nov

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    Having reached ‘a certain age’ Leon Hunt and Jason Titley can now say they’ve been friends and musical collaborators for most of their lives.

    This musical partnership started way back in the early nineties, at some truly unforgettable late-night festival jams. The magic of those early sessions inevitably led to the formation of a band, the groundbreaking and hugely popular ‘progressive’ bluegrass outfit, Daily Planet no less. Numerous projects and years later, they’re back as a duo, making the very most of the musical chemistry they always had but with the addition of decades of experience.

    "An evening in the company of Leon and Jason is a rare treat, more musical conversation than structured performance. Playing guitar, banjo, baritone banjo, and percussion, these old friends will almost certainly confound any pre conceived ideas you may be harbouring as to what these instruments can (and should) do. As well as leaning heavily on traditional music from the US and The British Isles, their own compositions take on musical references from just about everywhere else."

    UTEA: THE SOUNDS OF SIMON : 8pm, Saturday 8th May

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    The Sounds of Simon is a tribute to the wonderful music of Simon and Garfunkel. The Old Friends Duo tour is how the songs are meant to be: just two voices and one guitar. This is the music of Simon and Garfunkel up close and intimate.

    Relive the classics, from Mrs Robinson, to Homeward Bound, as well as some rarely heard songs like A Most Peculiar Man, and A Poem on the Underground Wall. Paul Simon is a wonderful songwriter and this is your chance to hear these songs as they were originally performed.

    Paul and Art are played to perfection, bringing in elements of their famously fractious relationship, as well as replicating the beautiful harmonies flawlessly. This is a wonderful show filled with excellent music, nostalgia, and a genuine love for some great musicians.



    “Ben is something of an expert on Paul Simon.” - BBC The One Show

    “A world class act.” – The Hinckley Times

    “The lead singers have excellent diction, wonderfully balanced harmonies and above all a friendly approach to audience contact. What a treat to listen to live sound with perfect volume.” The Melton Times.

    “A musical feast for anyone who loves the songs of Paul Simon.” –Chris Lloyd (Talon)

    “Our own Simon and Garfunkel.” - Musician Records

    “Their harmonies were spot on.” – The Outsider

As well as many tours of the UK, he also has recent successful trips to USA, Canada, Germany, India, Norway and New Zealand to his credit. Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves - all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show which has wowed audiences across the world from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields.
