Award-winning performer Teddy Hunter has been appointed Lecturer in Music by the University of Gloucestershire.

Teddy will be teaching the ‘Live Music Performance’ and ‘Managing Gigs, Events and Festivals’ modules on the Popular Music and Music Business courses within the University’s School of Creative Industries.

She will bring her wealth of experience as a musician, audiovisual artist and events promoter to share with the next generation of emerging musicians.

Teddy beat more than 3,000 hopefuls to win the ‘Green Man Rising’ competition at the 2021 Green Man Festival, playing on the main stage with her band.

She was also profiled and performed live on the BBC’s Horizons: The Sessions showcasing the best independent music talent from around Wales.

She has recently returned from a residency on Anglesey, where she organised and performed at a live music event on Bryn Celli Ddu, a Neolithic burial mound on Anglesey, as part of the 2022 solstice celebrations.

Matthew Lovett, Academic Subject Leader for Music and Sound, said: “It’s so great to have Teddy on the team at the University of Gloucestershire.

“She will play a powerful role in supporting our students to develop their careers with our ‘next big step’ approach, where our staff team, who are all active musicians and industry professionals, are able to guide students towards making the big step into industry after they graduate.”
