Roots Alive

Rehearsals take place on Fridays during term time from 5-6.30pm.

We meet at Pudsey Civic Hall.

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 

Open Rehearsals for the Spring Term will be held on Friday 10th and 17th January 2020, we would love to see you there!
