Local musicians join together for unique concert

Ukulele favourites meet Country classics at John St Baptist Church, Stroud, on Friday, April 24.

Local bands the Stroud Ukulele Orchestra (UkeStroud) and The Whiteshillbillies are joining forces for what promises to be a truly great evening.

UkeStroud are a friendly group of local ukulele fans of all ages and abilities that meet together to play in Pitchcombe three times a month. The group started as a spin-off from the UkeGlos group in Cheltenham.

Based out of Stroud, The Whiteshillbillies are giving an acoustic performance of their usual fun mix of Bluegrass, Country, Rockabilly and good old Rock and Roll. An evening with the Whiteshillbillies is guaranteed to be something to remember.

The experienced band members, who have been playing live music for years, came together to form The Whiteshillbillies around 2016. Since then the band has gone from strength to strength and has become a firm favourite at many of the area's live music venues, festivals, weddings and parties.

They play a diverse mix of songs by favourites such as Johnny Cash, The Kinks, Nancy Sinatra, Status Quo and even Disney,. Whether you're there to dance or just sing along, you're sure to have a good time.

Doors open at 7.15pm and tickets, costing £5 (under 12s free), are available from The Door Shop and Scrolleaters Book Shop or by calling 01453 756745.

Refreshments will be served during the evening.

All proceeds to local charity The Door whose mission is to bring hope into the lives of young people and their families through unlocking potential and opening opportunity so their past does not define their future.
