25/Aug/17 - 28/Aug/17 Shooting Roots at Towersey Thame, Oxon Towersey Festival United Kingdom
Time: 5:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Address: Thame Showground. Shooting Roots is the little corner of Towersey Festival made by and for young people. Join us for some serious sound-making this year in our Funky World Band and Song workshops. Funky World Band: Build a polyphonic folk orchestra from scratch – we’ll bring the tunes, you bring the skills. But never fear, you don’t need to be an all-star musician to get involved: there’s a place for you in the Funky World Band whether you’ve been playing a week or a decade. What’s guaranteed is a bunch of friendly faces, a lot of fun and new mates a-plenty. Song Sessions: If Song is more your thing, we’ve got you covered – come and get your lungs round your first few notes or add some cracking new tunes and arrangements to your collection. You don’t need to read music, we’ll show you how to pick it up by ear, and you’ll leave with a grin on your face. Buy Tickets More information
