‘Band for a Day’ Returns to Fringe Festival

by Ben Davis on 12 July, 2011 | 0 comments

Following an impressive debut last year, the ‘Band for a Day‘ experience returns to the Fringe on Sunday 17th July.

It’s an ace idea – organised by musician and teacher Gemma McHale, local budding musicians aged 11+ of any playing level are being encouraged to take part and perform. One of last year’s successes are a young band called ‘Kickstart’, who formed at Band for a Day,
they’ve since played school events and talent shows.

The participants are grouped into bands early on Sunday and they will then work with their own professional music mentor throughout the day, preparing a number of songs for their performance at the public evening concert.

It costs just £30 for the whole day, which includes a free ‘Band for a Day’ t-shirt (the best bit). Go to the Llangollen Fringe website for an application form and other info: www.llangollenfringe.co.uk.
