Side by Side Arts’ Ceilidh Band group

October 11, 2021, 7:30 pm @ Side By Side Arts, Dunsmuir Grove, Bensham, Gateshead, NE8 4QL

We are excited to launch our Side by Side Arts’ Ceilidh Band group.

Each week, we will learn a different tune, complete with harmonies and arrangements. There will be room for more advanced players to do some improvisation. Tunes will be a mixture of contemporary and traditional tunes, but all lively and folky. We’ll be learning by ear, although sheet music will be provided to take home, so music reading is not essential!

All you need is your instruments and a notebook. We’d love you to join our new weekly group and you should join if you are keen to play some folk music, meet some music enthusiasts and learn by ear, whether or not you’ve done it before
Through the Autumn we’ll be building towards playing for a real ceilidh for Side by Side Arts! This group is aimed at anyone of any instrument and any age, from grade 1 up (or a really willing beginner as there’ll be options for them too!)

Our group is £4.50 per session and all money is reinvested back into the group.
