*Please note workshop attendees must also have a Camping or Day ticket to attend this workshop.


Improvisation is a way of making music that should be open to all. This workshop is designed to open this door for players of any instrument. No music reading is required just a basic working knowledge of an instrument.

From its beginnings eight years ago within the University of Central Lancashire, Cold Bath Street under Director Simon Partridge has developed to take improvisation performance and workshops across the Northwest. Working with film, dance and collaborating internationally, probably the most famous musician to join them onstage has been Carl Palmer from ELP.

Indicative Content:
• What is Improvisation?
• Learning to play together
• Roles within the music
• Developing a given idea
Though there will be some verbal discussion, a good deal of the session will be spent playing, so do bring your own instrument. Safe storage is available via the event organisers.

This workshop and the closing set from the band (12 noon Sunday 8 August) are supported by Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Club #SHIFT #HereForCulture as part of the Bleep of Faith weekend of electronic, jazz, improvisation and other sweet musical treats in Gisburn Forest

Very limited availability
