Post-Arts Buzz update


2014 started to pick up steam at the start of this month with a whistle-stop tour of the wards of the Edgbaston District, which for those of you who might not realize it also includes Harborne, Quinton and Bartley Green.

‘On The Edge’ took a versatile trio of musicians, including Ed Haine, tenor sax, Tom Moore, bass and John Hirst on drums to each of the venues to play alongside visual artists and workshop with beginner musicians, our youngest recruit was just 2 and a half years old…

We're sure one of our front row listeners at Holloway Hall was just scratching her ear....honest.

Was that one of our front row listeners at Holloway Hall scratching her ear?

The tour bus schedule for the day looked like this:

  • 10.00 – 11.00 Holloway Hall, Bartley Green
  • 11.30 – 12.30 Keystone Children’s Centre (music -The Haven), Welsh House Farm
  • 2.00 – 3.00 Quinborne Community Centre, Quinton

Did you come along? Send photos:

Here’s a clip from our first visit to The Haven, and some of our not-so-shy-anymore new young friends:

Help make the last 2013 ‘On The Edge’ presents.. a special one

Customers, workshop attendees and audiences had the pleasure of listening to a wide range of musicians play at COSTA coffee in Harborne over the last few weeks and if you haven’t been able to come down to listen for yourself you’ve missed a treat.

The last of the 2013 series is the ‘Mirage Sax Quartet’, who will be playing some festive tunes to get you in the mood for the holiday season. What more could you want, a great seasonal beverage, free wifi and some great live music. And if you’re under 19 and want a free workshop with the band, come down from 5.30 to 6.30pm.

Here’s a clip of Mirage Sax Quartet playing at this summer’s ‘On The Edge’ Our Big Gig event:

If you let us know which instrument you play, or which you’d like to play we can provide an instrument for you to take the workshop with. Just e-mail us at ahead of the workshop or to sign up for future workshops in 2014.
