WORKSHOPS - all our events are acoustic and for all levels of ability
We are in talks with regards to securing The Beacon (Wantage) in the autumn (2021) for an Acoustic Blues Weekend. Hopefully, we'll make an announcement soon. Unfortunately, we will not be going back to The Hawth Theatre in Crawley in November because they do not have the space to accommodate us.
Acoustic Blues Weekend of workshops, jams and performance.
The Beacon, Wantage OX12 9BX

The programme will offer classes starting on Friday from 1pm to 5pm followed by a staff concert at 8pm. On Saturday, classes will run from 10am to 5pm followed by an evening jam session from 8pm to midnight for ‘participants only’. On Sunday, classes will run from 10am to 3pm. The classes will cater for all levels of ability and we recommend you bring along a portable recorder for future reference. The tutors for the ‘Acoustic Blues Weekend’ are John Miller (country blues guitar), Adam Franklin (bottleneck slide guitar) and Will Wilde (harmonica).
