Guitar group strikes a chord

A NOTICE in the Gazette two years ago led to the start-up of a new music group.

The Alnwick Guitar Group now has seven members and meets at the Lindisfarne Centre in Alnwick to play. Currently, the group meets informally once a fortnight on a Tuesday from 6pm to 7.30 pm.

The music played ranges from traditional songs and dances to stately pavanes and Bach chorales, with some sea shanties, Latin American and modern tunes thrown in for good measure.

The group is always looking for new players with experience at all levels. The only real requirement is an interest in playing the classical guitar and an ability to read straightforward guitar music.

Anyone interested can contact Douglas Ramsay by email atramsaydw@hotmail.co.uk or by phone on 01665 604047.
