18:15 - ARBORFIELD MILITARY WIVES CHOIR
Arborfield Military Wives choir was formed in May 2013, 2 years after the programme; ‘The Choir’ was aired. There are now 75 Military Wives Choirs across the UK & abroad. Primarily we are a support network & our aim is to support each other through singing. Arborfield is no different, the REME Garrison may have gone but forces housing still remain, so even more vital that we remain here as long as possible. The choir constantly changes & we currently have 17 members which all have links to the Armed Forces including wives, mothers & mother in laws, daughters, and veterans. We have had some amazing opportunities over the last few years including singing in London, New York & Guildford Cathedral as part of the MWC Cathedral tour. We have also sung with Lulu as part of her nationwide tour, have recently been selected to sing alongside other choir members on the Chris Evans radio show and some of our members have been a part of the hit musical Soldier on in London. We have been part of two MWC albums, Home for Christmas & the new album, Remember, which commemorates the end of WW1. We sing songs from across the genres and decades. We love our pop and are looking forward to revisiting our repertoire and learning new ones.
19:15 - NIGHTJJAR
Nightjjar is the work of Reading-based songwriter, Aden Pearce.
Originally toiling in rock bands around the Thames Valley at the turn of the century, Aden came to the attention of Interscope records through a Kerrang! magazine demo competition – the snag being that he was shortlisted for a live set and had no band, having produced the songs on his own. However emboldened by the experience, he relocated to Reading, playing shows for the next decade under his own name and quietly earning a strong reputation as an acoustic performer.
Inspired by Radiohead and John Grant, Aden fused a new sound somewhere between organic folk and electronica and returns to AYL? this year.
