Last Monday we kicked off the first of four scheduled Jam Sessions led by the wonderful Dorothy Ella. Between us, we had gone thematically OTT with jam doughnuts and jam sandwiches, Jammy Dodgers and cheese toasties with chutney!
We also had a fantastic turnout of musicians arrive from the off to play together in our café on guitars, bass, cahon and lap steel, as well as a few djembe! A real mix!
Whilst we’re really pleased with the results, especially the inclusivity and friendly feel of the night, we’ve also taken onboard suggested improvements that will allow musicians to showcase their work in a clearer capacity, as well as offer key slots for whole group accompaniment. We can’t wait to put them into action on the next session on March 16th and think it will take things up a notch immediately.
In the meantime, enjoy some of these shots from the bar. See you next time!
