What we're about

This is a group to revive the folky communal jams/singalongs mainly on acoustic guitar, along with tambourines, harmonica and such, singing songs from the 60's and early 70's up to more contemporary artists.
Music will be shared, guitar chords will be easy whenever possible to enable more people to play and keep up.
The ultimate aim of the group is to bring this magic back for young people of today to become familiar and grow up with, the way those of that period did.
After some practices and on a recurring basis, will be seeking libraries and public spaces, to have these community jam sessions for one and all.
