As Busy as ever after the Autumn break. Nursery Adventure, school projects, the James Band, and starting again soon the Youth project. At Arbeat Studios we have started up the Journeys project which will also take place in Kelso and Jedburgh.


17th Nov

Another busy week with Katie, Chris and Fin continuing the Nursery Adventure round the Borders; Fin and Katie taking on the primary schools beyond Peebles; Fin and Dawn at Gala Academy; Fin, Dawn, Bill and James at Artbeat; Fin and James working on the band stuff in Kelso and Jedburgh. And this is the weekend of Brash in St Boswells Church Hall on Sunday - involving TRASH stuff and Brass and Saxs. We are really going to need the Christmas break.

19th Nov

What do you get if you take a group of people, some of whom have never met before, aged 7-70; 15 big plastic drums, a bat phone, a scaffolding glockenspiel, a xylophone; all from TRASH Arts; trombone, trumpets, saxophones from the OO group; and funneloniums (courtesy of Scottish National Funneloniums), and mix them together? You get BRASH of course. TRASH arts, the long established arts group based in the Borders specialising in creating music and mixed media from scrap and donated instruments brought together TRASH percussionists, Brass players of the TRASH Other Orchestra and people who answered the Social Media call, to make up a BRASH Band for the afternoon. The session was voted, a mildly hysterical, success. We are planning other sessions of this unique grouping and stress relief therapy.
