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:
