Roots Alive returns on Friday 13th September!


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.

The group is for players who are grade 4 and above standard 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: Gill Pearson
