Group strikes a chord

Alnwick Guitar Group
Alnwick Guitar Group

The Alnwick Classical Guitar Group is celebrating its seventh anniversary.

It was formed after a piece in the Gazette asking if anyone was interested in getting together to play classical guitar for fun.

Seven years later, the original three members are still playing their guitars but have been joined by six, sometimes seven, more folk.

The group still meets fortnightly on a Tuesday from 6pm to 7.30pm at the Lindisfarne Adult Learning Centre.

Now it is on the lookout for new members. All ages and levels are welcome. The only real requirements are an interest in playing classical guitar with others and a reasonable ability to read straightforward guitar music.

The group tackles all sorts of music, including Northumbrian songs , folk music,

popular songs, waltzes, hornpipes, slushy songs, Latin American and light classical – anything that takes members’ fancy.

Anyone interested in joining can contact Douglas Ramsay on 01665 604047 for more information.
