Outside the Box

Type of Event: Music Workshop

(English) This Live Music Now (LMN) Wales project will see a series of performances and a song writing workshop delivered with residents at Newydd Housing Association schemes.

LMN duo String Beats, comprising Angharad Jenkins on the fiddle and beat boxer Dean Yhnell, accompanied by LMN solo singer John Nicholas on guitar.

The musicians will teach participants basic song writing skills, beat box techniques and how to use a loop pedal and use percussion.

During the workshop, the musicians will record samples of participants singing, rapping, beat boxing and playing percussion.

The aim of the project is to produce a final piece of music, using the samples collected, that challenges preconceived ideas of ageing and older people.

PLEASE NOTE This project is closed to the general public - for Newydd Housing Association residents/staff and family only.

Additional funding to carry out the project was received from Newydd Community Regeneration.
