WOTTON SILVER BAND : 8pm

Celebrations for Wotton Silver Band's 125th anniversary year would not be complete without a second performance at UTEA by the town's very own home-grown band.

Many people's idea of the music a brass band offers the listener is limited to a traditional march or hymn tune. Those who attended last year's concert experienced a very varied repertoire delivered with perhaps an unexpected degree of capability. This is a brass en-semble which dedicates itself to twice weekly rehearsals at their bandroom in Old Town, in order to maintain the high standards required to perform regular concerts but also to participate in competitions.

Under the watchful guidance of their experienced Musical Director Ian Dickinson, this con-cert will demonstrate the full range of musical styles and dynamic range an able brass band can deliver, from occasional moments of power to soft and movingly delicate melodies, evoking a range of emotions to stir the soul. Come to be thoroughly entertained and maybe a little surprised at the talent on your doorstep!

SPIKEDRIVERS : 8pm

Bluesroots at it's Best!

Spikedrivers music has been described as 'haunting', 'gutsy', 'tribal' and even psychedelic. Blues in Britain says, “From the first note, Spikedrivers demand to be listened to. Ben Tyzack, Constance Redgrave and Maurice McElroy are three very talented musicians willing to experiment and evoke unusual contemporary sounds while they continue to keep diggin’ the blues by the roots.”

From the early blues of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and Big Bill Broonzy they have added their own blend of north African and Native American rhythms, gospel harmonies, sixties blues and rock guitar. They’ve been compared to The Band, Led Zeppelin, Ry Cooder, JJ Cale, Fleetwood Mac and even Pink Floyd. It all adds up to simply the Spikedrivers.

With their high energy show, Spikedrivers have been burning up European festival stages. They’ve gained rave reviews at the Chedigny Blues Festival, Cognac Blues Passions, Lugano Blues to Bop Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival, and the Jazz Rallye de Luxembourg to name just a few.

“For their multitude of admirers, they seem to be growing in stature as a headline band. If you have not seen them you simply must.” Blues in Britain

"this band should grace the stage at every festival " Blues Matters! - UK

"Three musicians interweaving and complimenting each other perfectly Folk Roots - UK

"…a gift for evocative songwriting" Radio 2- Paul Jones

"Spikedrivers on the main stage with their take on

down home in your face blues..." Ealing Blues Festival
