The open-air musical is back


Dursley After Hours is back for what promises to be a cracking performance from bluegrass duo Leon Hunt and Jason Titley.

Taking place under the town’s iconic market place, the open-air musical evening runs from 7-9pm on Friday, May 20. It is a free and family-friendly event with people encouraged to buy food from local eateries, supporting local businesses, and sit and enjoy a summer evening.

“Come along and enjoy a chilled evening, and support our town,” said Dursley After Hours Chair Danae Savvidou. “We are organising a series of once a month Friday evenings through the summer, on 20 May, 17 June, 19 August and 16 September, and have some great music lined up.”

Supported with a grant from Dursley Town Council, the events are organised by town councillors and friends Danae Savvidou, Doina Cornell, Wendy Thomas and Anja Rowston.

Leon Hunt and Jason Titley’s musical partnership started way back in the early nineties, at some truly unforgettable late-night festival jams. The magic of those early sessions inevitably led to the formation of a band, the groundbreaking and hugely popular ‘progressive’ bluegrass outfit, Daily Planet no less.

Numerous projects and years later, they’re back as a duo, making the very most of the musical chemistry they always had but with the addition of decades of experience. More info at www.leonandjason.com
