9:30pm Ukelear Fallout

Ukelear Fallout is a five-piece band (often plus a guest bass player), that combines harmonies and a mix of instruments (guitar, mandolin, ukulele, trumpet) to play in our own distinctive style, based on Americana. We’re a group of friends who enjoy performing together and have had a great year so far - opening the Tunbridge Wells Mela world music festival; being part of the Official Busking Team at the amazing Black Deer Americana festival; and opening the two-day Cudham Craic music festival, as well as playing at many other events and venues.  It’s really great to be returning to play at the Forum.
