MOLLY-ANNE with band plus support (TBC) : 8pm

Molly-Anne is a young and upcoming Country musician, multi-instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter from local North Nibley, Gloucestershire, bringing a quaint British charm to the Americana genre.

With a soulful, Country inspired-sound fused with elements of indie and folk, Molly accompanies herself on the harmonica, acoustic guitar and banjo. With over a decade of performance and writing experience under her
belt, Molly draws her inspiration from artists such as Bob Dylan, Alison Krauss, Eva Cassidy, Passenger, Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons.

Writing poetic, upbeat songs and enjoying a joyfully sweet but unabashed live presence, Molly-Anne released her debut EP 'Songs From The South' with title track 'Polperro' in June 2018 and followed quickly with her
single 'Talkin Bout Somethin' which saw airplay on BBC Introducing and BBC Gloucestershire as well as resulting in a nomination as a featured artist on Blues & Roots International Radio (UK, USA, CA).

Molly-Anne enjoyed sell-out headline shows in her local county on her Sunshine 2018 summer tour, recently supported Noble Jacks on their UK tour and is now looking forward to supporting one of her heroines Cara Dillon
in March 2019 as well as planning a Southern UK tour in March '19 with Danny McMahon.

Supported live by the energetic ‘band of Andy’s’ (Andy Guy on Double Bass & BVs, Andy Chinner on Cahon) the trio are storming through the South-West country and folk scene. Rave reviews have them firmly as a popular
live favourite around the UK, get your dancing shoes on, this is not one to miss!

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!

INSTANT WIT : 8pm

Instant Wit, the best in improvised comedy. Fresh and inventive, each show throws up new nuggets of hilarity crafted by a company of the highest calibre. It’s a pick-me-up tonic with unexpected twists and a dash of sauce.

There’ll be sketches, songs and general silliness – and all of it based around audience suggestions. And if you’re too shy to shout anything out? Well don’t worry, you’ll have the chance to write things down in the interval. We’re the ones who’ll look daft, not you!

So now’s the time to indulge yourself if you’ve always had a secret yearning to see something really bizarre on stage. How about an English folk song about a tortoise going on holiday? A sketch where Sainsbury’s opens a branch on the moon? Well why not? Your wish is our command. Good suggestions get flying packets of custard, the best a bottle of wine.

Many people have seen improvised comedy on the t.v. – but remember, this is not recorded and edited, but totally live, making it trickier for the actors but more exciting for the audience. So, if you like your comedy fast-paced and with a slightly unusual edge, this is definitely for you.

We’re proud to use some of the best in local talent, with our performers regularly appearing at the Tobacco Factory, Theatre Royal Bath and the Bristol Old Vic.

Instant Wit – a bunch of very Unusual Suspects who are forever on the run from the Comedy Police.

"These are conspicuously skilful performers - everyone is exhilarated on stage and off!" The Guardian

“Instant Wit produce a show of surreal, mad-cap improvised hilarity that will leave you aching with laughter, chuckling with the stupidity of it all and, no doubt, wanting to go again.”
