We like to thank Sutton House for inviting us to deliver a participatory community music workshop with the wise elders of Hackney and Sutton houses’ community volunteers..
Many of the participants had never played an instrument before and fed back that they enjoyed exploring and connecting with their peers through their musical interaction.
By the end of the session everybody was out of their seat dancing and laughing with a renewed energy.
A massive thank you to all the families, participants and even Happis the dog
that made Lambeth country show outreach a session to remember.
Angela and JOS team delivered the session with uplift and cheer getting everyone in tune
with JOS signals, and even though we had a PA system blaring away next door, we got
an effusive play of sounds and voices filling the space.
Lots of people of different ages and backgrounds explored new
instruments they had never touched before, and many young folk
tried out the signals in the centre with a resounding acknowledgement
that brought wide smiles full of confidence.
There have been whispers that this may be the very last Lambeth country show.
We sincerely hope this is just a rumour, but if there is any truth there,
we have had a good run of intensive fun community participatory improvised music.
Thank you Lambeth Country show for inviting us back again and again over the last decade.
