In 2013, Head4Arts worked in partnership with Ebbw Fach Communities First to offer a series of ukulele taster sessions as part of the Menu for Life programme. Due to the popularity of this activity, the sessions have continued to run and are attended by 15 community members each week.
Over the past two years, with the help of tutors Brian and Lynsey, participants have been able to hone their musical skills and have developed the confidence to perform as a group. The sessions also offer a great opportunity for members to meet with like-minded people, develop a support network and, most importantly, have fun.
Highlights for the group so far have included recording a CD and performing at a range of community events. They have even starred in their own mini documentary – click here to find out more.
Following a well-earned summer break, the group will reconvene in September and are looking forward to their next musical challenge.
