If you're not sure what bluegrass and old time music sounds like, and would like to give it try, the bluegrass session will be a straightforward and slow session playing along with some from Hexham Bluegrass. Suitable for anyone that fancies playing a few chords, singing a little, or maybe try a solo instrumental. Any acoustic instrument welcome.

Improvisation session: 2.00 – 3.00 pm
A session on playing back beat rhythms such as swing and reggae, with a little bit of background as to where these rhythms may have originated and how they have evolved. Open to all instrumentalists and singers – no prior musical knowledge required!
