A SOUTHAMPTON-based funk-brass group has been voted by the public as their favourite discovery act from a major Hampshire festival.

Tuba-Libres were presented with their prize which came after they were one of 19 discovery acts at last year’s Beggars Fair in Romsey.

Festival-goers were then invited to vote for their favourite act, giving up-and-coming artists the chance to play to a large audience and receive a prize.

Tuba-Libres have been delivering their infectious grooves to audiences across the south since 2014. They love to play live and can sometimes be found busking on the streets around Hampshire.

Their eclectic mix of 80s classics, modern pop and excessive original brass band tune are guaranteed to get crowds moving and grooving.

You can catch them again at this year’s Beggars Fair on July 8, where they have a spot on the Cornmarket main stage, as part of their Discovery Award prize. There will be a host of exciting new talented discovery acts to be announced as part of the line up to be released ahead of the event. Visit the Beggars Fair website www.beggarsfair.org.uk

The £50 prize was donated by event venue The Old House at Home.
