Concertini with Papa Truck

About

Round off half term with a toe-tapping 45 minutes of American Bluegrass with a distinctly British twist. Concertini with Papa Truck perform at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts on Saturday 5 June at 11.30am and 2pm. Tickets are £12 (£10 under 16s). 

This event will be livestreamed – Livestream tickets are £12 per household. 

With tunes you'll know and others you won’t Papa Truck will transport you to Nashville via the local area and back again.

This concert is all about inspiring children and their grown-ups with live music in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Papa Truck is a bluegrass band playing original material, based in South Buckinghamshire. The line up is Martin Selman (vocals, guitar, tenor guitar, mandolin and jaw harp), Ryan Quartermaine (vocals, guitar and dobro), Dan Abram (banjo), Nia Sherrington (vocals, fiddles) and Charlie Sarner (vocals, bass).

They write songs inspired by the many great bluegrass players and bands out there. They then add their very own blend of influences from artists as diverse as The Beatles and Van Halen. Their well crafted, refreshing and uplifting songs are evidence of the band's love of many styles of music. 

Papa Truck have released three albums and appeared at bluegrass festivals around the UK and Europe. 

Whether you are listening to their tracks, or watching a live performance, you are always guaranteed to have a smile on your face and one foot tapping.

A ‘Concertini’ is a short, inspirational live music experience aimed at the whole family. The purpose of each Concertini is to introduce children to different styles of live music and musical instruments. They prepare children for the enjoyment of more formal live music events and nurture a love of music. They also provide an opportunity for parents and carers to listen to live music with their children in a relaxed community setting.

Concertini was formed in May 2015 by local musician, teacher and mum of two, Julia Bentley Dawkes. Born into a musical family, Julia passionately believes that everyone can benefit from live music and the earlier we introduce it the better.

This is a show where little people can dance whilst grown-ups and big kids can enjoy listening to live music in a relaxed and friendly environment.
