The Newgrass Cutters are guaranteed to have you grinning and singing along.
The show will also see Pete Brown joined by the League of Crafty Ukulele Masters (LOCUM) – ukulele players who play music not normally heard from the ukulele. Their very original repertoire, arranged and led by Pete Brown, has made them one of the hottest acts to follow at some of the most prestigious ukulele festivals.
Many of the players started under the expert tuition of Sam Brown’s Fabulous Ukulele Club, which led them to challenge their skills further and create their own unique style.
They delight in performing a wide range of material and are supported by a selection of singers, accompanied by double bass, harmonica and lap steel guitar.
