Our Ukulele and Singing Weekend tutors welcome all-comers to a lighthearted evening of ukulele and song!
Jon Bennett and Liz Van Santen are both members of four-piece band Moonrakers, which combines musicians from both the classical and the folk tradition. The fact that the band “just OOZES quality” (Living Tradition) is down to the careful arrangements and selection of tunes and songs, presenting “exquisite music” (BBC). Now with four albums under their belt and described as “startlingly talented” (Oxford Times), Moonrakers provide “truly wonderful” (Wycombe Festival) informal evenings of musical excellence and humour.
Samantha Muir is one of the UK’s leading classical and campanela style ukulele players. Her arrangements range from Bach, Sor and Tarrega to traditional songs, sea shanties, and Scottish tunes. Samantha is much in demand as a performer and teacher of ukulele and has appeared at festivals including The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival, UKE East, the Perthshire Ukulele Gathering and BUG Festival.
