TATT is a group of musicians who meet informally at The Trout in Lechlade, hence the name which stands for Tunes At The Trout, think of them as a “pop up” band. Their musical style is predominantly instrumental traditional folk but they encompass composers ranging from Playford 16th century, O’Carolan 17th century and Mozart to more modern artists and feature Fiddle, Accordion, Flute, Recorder, Guitar, Mandolin and Percussion.
Wessex Choir’s Musical Director, Rhiannon Williams-Hale, says; ‘This is a fabulous opportunity for the Lechlade audience to hear the choir and gives local talent an opportunity to perform with them. Wessex has a lively performance with fabulous lighting and stagecraft that helps bring the music to life – Wessex is not your average male choir!’
