NEW: ‘THE SLOW JAM’ Thursday 5th Oct 8:30pm

Strathmore Bar

795 Maryhill Road


G20 7TL 

Since 2013 we have been running a Very Slow Session in various pubs and cafes, to encourage early-stage players of all instruments to play together  informally in a public space.

Some folks have been coming to these sessions and are beginning to feel confident with the sixty or so tunes that are played regularly.  They feel they could take the pace of playing ‘up a notch’.

On Thursday 5th October, starting at 8.30pm, there will be a tutor-led ‘Slow Jam’ (ie slighty FASTER than the VSS and with an expanding repertoire) at Strathmore Bar, Maryhill.

The Strathmore Bar have decided they liked what they heard when we had our first tentative go at this a few weeks ago, as indeed did the (applauding) punters! The plan might be do do one of these 'Slow Jams' once a month for the near future, depending on support.

The VERY SLOW Session will of course, continue in its established form on alternate Tuesdays.

Next Very Slow Session at CAFE SIEMPRE - 26th September
