Ukulele Day

with Sara Spade

Friday 7 July | 12noon - 8pm 

Join us for Ukulele Day with Sara Spade and hear amazing performances on the main stage, plus take part in a free Ukulele workshop in The Nook.

Jools Holland says: “She has a fantastic voice - her band makes me want to dance… they have that magical element which is almost impossible to put your finger on!” With her ebullient blend of vintage ukulele jazz and blues-infused Retro-Pop Swing originals, Sara’s music breaks boundaries. She has been played on BBC Radio 2 and has even converted a younger audience via Bestival director DJ Rob da Bank.
The band has a residency at London’s darkest smokey-jazz dive ‘Boisdale of Belgravia,’ and has toured the UK & Germany where she has a surprise following of fanatical fans. Setting her own songs next to Charlestones like “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue”, jazz versions of “It Must Be Love” and heart-melting ballads like “Secret Love”, Sara Spade delivers a cracking performance with Jonny Gee on bass & Jonny Mattock on snare drum. To quote BBC Radio London’s Larry Pryce, Sara is “Simply irresistible…a special one off talent.”
