We're planning some Beginners’ Workshops starting in late September (2022). Contact us for more details.
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.
June 3 \ Milverton Cricket Club June 4 \ Wellington Town Centre July 9 \ Bridgwater July 16 \ Taunton Pride August 7 \ Porlock August 28 \ Watchet Music Fest Sept 18 \ Vivary Park, Taunton Oct 29 \ Wellington Street Market
More detail to follow ...
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 use the contact form below.
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 planning our next course for September 2022, so leave a message below to register your interest and we'll be in touch with more detail.
