Roots Alive play traditional and folk music from both Britain and around the world, on a range of instruments – mainly strings (e.g. violins, guitars and mandolins) and woodwind (especially flutes and whistles), but also including hand percussion and accordions. We also regularly travel – in Summer 2018 we went an exchange to Chemnitz, Germany, to partner with a local music school there. They then came to visit us in March 2019.
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.
Director: Ruth Wild
