On Monday the 28th of August Mind Waves hosted their first open mic event with the Dream Machine Glasgow! We started the event with lots of chatting and biscuits and catching up, of course, and then we got into the music and singing. The day ended up being more of an informal jam sesh and songwriting workshop, and we wrote a song together which I’m sure you’ll all hear very soon!
I’m including a couple of photographs we took at the event as well as a link to a video of Anna covering Simple Man by Lynrd Skynrd, so you can get a taste of what we got up to! Click here for Anna’s cover.
Info on the next event can be found at the bottom of the post!
We are delighted to be a recipient of The Dream Machine’s Betty McAllister Fund which gives us fully funded access to their community space for a new project. Our participants asked for more informal group “jam sessions” and this opportunity is enabling us to make it happen!
So why not join us for our new Mind Waves monthly open mic session? We’ll be meeting on the last Monday of every month. Come along to share music and songs creative writing and stories (can be original or just share your favourites), join in a few sing-a-longs or simply come along to listen and have a chat.
