About

Dursley Male Voice Choir

12th July - 7:30pm - Crudwell Church

The Dursley Male Voice Choir was founded by a group of enthusistic singinger in 1978 and has since grown to be one of the principal male choirs of the region with up to 70 singers drawn from all over the area. As well as local concerts the choir has performed at many venues across the UK. The choir has achieved notable success in several competitions on the BBC and HTV in 1982/3/4 and 1986, including being semi–finalists in the BBC Male Voice Choir Choir of the Year competition.Successes also followed in competitions in Cornwall (1990) and to some measure in Huddersfield (1991). First place was also gained in the prestigious Miners’ Eisteddfod in Porthcawl in 1996. More recently in 2009 the choir was awarded third place in the Cornwall International Music Festival against strong competition.

Andrew Jupp

Andrew Jupp has been playing the piano accordion since the age of 17. He has played in a range of folk and dance bands, but now plays mainly solo for enjoyment, family and friends, and for barn dances where he also “calls” the dances. His style is traditional English folk dance, Scottish dance, and American folk. He has led a number of church worship groups and in particular, children’s worship songs.

Sweet Nightingale

One guitar, two voices, beautiful harmonies and music for your inner songbird. We are an acoustic duo based in Swindon. We have played at a variety of festivals and events across Wiltshire over a number of years.We play a eclectic mix of songs - jazz standards, easy listening, country, pop, rock and soul. Our playlist is extensive and wide-ranging and can include artists such as Buddy Holly, George Ezra, The Beautiful South, Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, Adele, Smokey Robinson and even Disney!

Mal Rogers

Mal is a fiddle player, mandolin player, guitarist and singer originally from Co. Down in Northern Ireland. He plays a selection of Irish and Scottish folk and traditional music.

Sam Salter

Sam was formed in Cornwall in the early 1980s, from just two cells. He is not a mutant, and is not on the run from a shady government organisation. He attended more than a few educational establishments, and several places of employment, some of them rather Far Away, before arriving in Crudwell where he lives on Tuners Lane (in a house). A number of noises were emitted throughout those years, some of which he eventually learned to replicate on demand - and it is those very noises which you may hear if you attend this event.

Fourtunes Quartet

The Fortunes Saxaphone Quartet comprimises Janet Roe on Soprano, Katie Hawkins on Alto, Sarah Grigg on tenor and Jermemy Hawkins on Baritone. They are a local group hailing from Swindon (janet), Purton (Sarah) and Crudwell (katie and Jeremy). They’ve been performing together for several years and their varied repetoire ranges from clasiical to pop (with lots in between!). They have performed at the Strawberry Fayre several times and are pleased to be doing so again in 2017.
