Rhythms from Brazil & Somerset

skintight samba

. . . a community samba band based in Wellington, Somerset.

SKINTIGHT sprouted from an Adult Ed. evening class about 15 years ago. Nobody wanted to miss weekly sessions during the Summer and Easter breaks so the band declared independence and has rolled ever since.

We rehearse nearly every week and appear at events and celebrations in Somerset and beyond.

join us

Skintight rehearses most Tuesday evenings in Wellington, Somerset.

Experienced musicians are welcome to join us when we are recruiting (not at the moment). Players with little or no musical experience are just as welcome but will need to attend one of our 6-session beginners' courses first. We're running a course now and haven't fixed any dates for future workshops and courses yet, but leave a message below to register your interest and we'll be in touch when we have more information.
