Edinburgh Blues Academy - Visit Gracemount High

"Thank you so much for coming along! Really enjoyed what I got to participate in and it’s really important for our kids to get this kind of musical exposure so thank you again." - Ms McGhee, Music Teacher, Gracemount High

As a part of our Place funding, this autumn we're taking our Blues Academy out into the high schools of Edinburgh, starting with Gracemount High, near Liberton. 

For the morning, local blues cheir Toby Mottershead took his cigar box guitar and Robert Johnson collection into the S3 music group, to try and inspire a little creativity and blues into the young students. 

It was the first session of several across the city before July 2020 - more photo's and reviews to come!
