Alan Benzie Trio Workshop 2018

The band were delighted to welcome the marvellous Alan Benzie Trio into our rehearsal space in the City Halls in January of 2018.

The Alan Benzie Trio delivered a hugely enjoyable workshop session covering improvisation, musical communication, and performance techniques.

The experience was inspiring and tremendous fun, so much so, that their “Little Mysteries” gig in February at Websters Theatre Glasgow became a band outing.

We look forward to other opportunities in the future….
