Want an excuse to get that old guitar out of the loft? How about cleaning the banjo strings and tuning it up again? Or maybe it’s time to have another go on those dusty drums?
The call is out for any rusty musicians, aged 50 or over, to get involved in a new series of sessions about to start at the Mill Arts Centre.
The “Rusty Musicians” social jam sessions start on Thursday 12 May from 1.30pm to 3pm.. They cost £3 per session.
“If you have an instrument lying around that’s getting dusty, or you haven’t played for a while but still have a passion for music then put the date in your diary.. These jam sessions aim to be fun, sociable events where you can bring along your own instrument or turn up and use one of our electric, acoustic, or bass guitars, a keyboard, maracas or even an electric drum kit.
“There’s no need to book – just come along and jam.”
The sessions are part of a Cherwell initiative aimed at providing leisure opportunities for older people that includes cultural, sporting and other organised social activities.. Currently the council is working with the Mill Arts Centre in Banbury to provide activities for the over 50s that include:
