SWF Charity Concert 2019

A Cornucopia of Music in South Woodham Ferrers on the 17th August

Saturday Evening Charity Concert in the Village Hall   CM3 5PL


There is a full and varied bill of professional performers for the evening Charity Concert which follows the day time Ukulele Festival on the 17th August; 7pm.

As an illustration of what the Concert offers (for the modest price of £10 per ticket – all profits to the Alzheimer`s Society) the following is a selection from the artiste`s web sites and publicity material.


Plasic Jeezus are a trio from Bournemouth who play quirky tunes which put smiles on faces and get toes tapping. Simon (ukulele) Aaron (bass) and Dave (drums) play a unique brand of witty, jaunty folk-rock which has seen them charm audiences all over the UK. Their debut album “Choose Your Own Misadventure” received rave reviews.  Raucous sing-alongs, audience participation, an impromptu kazoo orchestra - anything can happen when Plastic Jeezus take the stage.


The Hedge Inspectors, Mike and Caroline Hayllor are also from South of the Thames being based in Holybourne Hampshire. They play original songs on ukulele and bass guitar. Their songs “move from then sublime to the ridiculous and back again” with subjects derived from “true” situations and human condition.


Opera-lele has rapidly established itself as one of the most innovative and exciting new acts in the (ukulele?) world. George Bartle and Amanda Harkett sing music from opera and musical theatre accompanied by the emotionally powerful…twang of the ukulele. They both trained as singers at the Royal College of Music and Goldsmiths College before forging careers for themselves as top quality entertainers. “Opera-lele is like nothing that you have seen before. Brilliantly funny and supremely talented”.


Last but not least Phil Doleman whose love of the blues, hokum, old-time and jug band music shines through as he blows dust off obscure old songs and gives new life to classics with his intricate picking and driving rhythms on both ukulele and five string banjo. His original songs blend in seamlessly with many believing that they are old songs which have passed them by. Phil has toured Europe and The US. He has appeared on over 20 albums (and on a No 2 hit single) and performed on BBC radio and TV.
