Rhythms from Brazil & Somerset
. . . 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.
Skintight has played at Carnivals, festivals, food-fairs, street-fairs, steam-fairs, weddings, hand-fastings, community arts events, fire-walks, a party at the House of Commons...
If you'd like to book us for your celebration please make contact with Lisa.
Skintight rehearses most Tuesday evenings (7-9) in Wellington, Somerset and anyone over 16 is welcome to have a go.
Experienced musicians are welcome to join at almost any time. Players with little or no musical experience are just as welcome but it works better for you if you join one or two at a time - make contact and we'll tell you the best time to start.
