Roots Alive play traditional British and Irish music on a range of instruments – mainly strings (e.g. violins, guitars and mandolins) and woodwind (especially flutes and whistles), but also including hand percussion, accordions and concertinas. We also regularly travel – in Summer 2018 we are going on an exchange to Chemnitz, Germany, to partner with a local music school there.
Most members are fluent on their instruments and have a willingness / ability to play by ear or memory. We don’t hold auditions, but do encourage prospective members to join us for a trial rehearsal.
Directors: Ruth Wild and Hannah Rosebury
We are currently finished for the summer but will be back again on Friday 7th September 2018. If you’re interested in joining, please email email@example.com to arrange a trial rehearsal.
