Silver Instrumental Special: History of Rock & Roll

Silver Programme Stringed Instruments


Join us for this journey through a golden era of musical history! Celebrating the birth of the original Pop music, starting in the USA in the early 50s with artists who popularised the genre and brought it to the masses, all the way through the swinging 60s and then onto the experimental 70s, to discover how far and wide the music spread and the range of artists it influenced.

This session will be split into 2 sections, singers and band, with everyone coming together at the end to perform the pieces they’ve learnt.

Singers led by Juliette Tate. Band led by Rich Sutton and Phil Davids.

For intermediate/advanced instrumentalists, acoustic or electric guitar and ukulele, who are comfortable following chord charts.

Please email [email protected] or telephone 0191 443 5034 to let us know which instrument you will be playing before Thursday 8 August so we can have the appropriate music ready for you.
