Brighter Sound presents Junior Jam – an exciting new monthly Saturday morning music group for children aged four to eight at Band on the Wall.

Folk Music from the British Isles

We’re exploring sounds closer to home for this edition, with a jammed-pack session exploring folk music with Project Jam Sandwich’s Scottish violinist Katie Foster. She will take you through the music and dances of this fantastic world, hopping around the UK to explore what the Scottish, Welsh, English and Irish get up to musically. Plus learn all about the giant double bass with Ali McMath – the largest string instrument of them all!

Junior Jam is led by Project Jam Sandwich, a world-folk-fusion quintet of award-winning musicians known for concocting captivating, exhilarating improvisations, infectious rhythms and beautiful melodies from around the globe.

All instruments are provided (ukuleles available for use in sessions only – we can offer advice on where to go and what to buy).
