Community Music

Community Music  image

Since January 2019, we here at Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival have been joining with Tinderbox collective and the St Bride's Centre to run an open, welcoming community music group at the St Bride's Centre in Dalry. 

Since January, 40 musicians have come through the doors, forming the core of one of Edinburgh's most diverse, inclusive and adaptable bands! Now called the GD Jam, this group is creatively led by the members, chosing songs, concerts, the bands name and its logo. Highlights so far include opening a free community concert as a part of this year's Gallus, A Scottish Jazz Weekend.  

We're looking to build on the success of the group, and grow community engagement in making music and the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, so look out for new groups coming up in your area!
