Moonlight Mandolins
The Moonlight Mandolins was founded as a teaching group for mandolin students by Hugh Boyde. The name derives more from the practice of moonlighting, than from the light reflected from our nearest celestial body. The group rapidly expanded and soon found itself able to work on mandolin orchestra repertoire, and to perform concerts. Now it’s a good size mandolin orchestra and is gaining new members, and many new arrangements.

The Fretful Federation is THE Mandolin Orchestra
Orchestra History

Brighton's very own mandolin orchestra has been in existence for 14 years, since its foundation by Ian Harris, the Leader and Musical Director of the Orchestra, in 1995. His goal was to revive the tradition of mandolin orchestras, which were hugely popular in the UK up until the 1930s.

Originally playing standard Banjo-Mandolin-Guitar pieces typical of Mandolin Orchestras of the beginning of the century, the repertoire of The Fretful Federation is always expanding and developing and now includes everything from tangos, rumbas and ragtime to classical and contemporary works, fully challenging the range of instruments of the mandolin family. For a varied repertoire, come to one of the concerts.

The Fretful Federation regularly takes part in competitions and in 1998 won the Francis Day and Hunter Trophy for ensembles of 6-9 players, and in 1999 and 2000 the Senior Orchestra Coronation Trophy for Entertainment, at the annual British Federation of Banjoists, Mandolinists and Guitarists rallies. In 2001 The Fretful Federation won the First Prize for Musicianship with a piece by Konrad Wölki,and in 2004 at the October Rally at Falmer School here in Brighton regained the Entertainment cup with a programme varying from Benvenuto by J Kok to Der Heavy Metal Peppi by Otto Jezck. And in 2008 we again won the Challenge Cup for Entertainment at the festival in East Kilbride with a sensitive interpretation of the "Song of a Japanese Autumn", by Yasuo Kuwahara; come to hear us play it!
