Was this the First Annual St Albans Ukes and Brass Christmas Concert?
St Albans Brass Band and The Pluckwits Ukulele Band entertained at least 100 park-goers with Carols and Festive songs on Sunday 12th December at the Pavilion in Clarence Park and it was such fun! The music was provided free and the Pavilion sold mulled wine, mince pies and hot chocolate.
Vicky Arlidge, founder of the The Pluckwits, said ‘I absolutely love this unique combination of ukuleles and a brass band! Throw in a few Santa hats, a dose of Christmas spirit and some boozey hot chocolates (or mulled wine!) and this performance couldn’t have failed to bring joy to the St Albans community!’
Richard Sved, Chair of St Albans Brass Band said ‘we’ve collaborated with the Pluckwits before and it’s excellent fun to work with such enthusiastic and talented performers. We were going to play a concert together last year, but then the first lockdown happened so this concert was unfinished business!’
Oh and if that wasn’t enough, we then played at the Mayor’s Carols only an hour later!
