The People’s Jam Session

Saturday 10 December, 2022 @ 19:00 - 22:00


The core principles of the People’s Art Fair are that all creative practice deserves a platform from which to shine; that together we are greater than the sum of our parts; that the barriers between us as people and as communities need to be pulled down; and that a healthy and active culture leads to a healthy society and that coming together in a spirit of creativity and playfulness can be one of the most rewarding things we can do.

So in the true spirit of the People’s Art Fair we are delighted to welcome the Immigrant Swing Family to our beautiful venue this December for a festive edition of the People’s Jam Session, a music jam session open to all.

Come along, bring voices and instruments, have a boogie and show us your skills!

Pay-what-you-can – there is a recommended price of £4 on the door at this event, but no-one will be turned away through lack of funds. Book in advance or pay on the door. All ticket money goes to the Immigrant Swing Family.

Immigrant Swing offers its own blend of Bristol Riot Swing, a high energy, foot stomping, acoustic music merging sounds from around the globe, with influences ranging from Gypsy Jazz & Blues to Mediterranean Folk & Hip Hop. A Swinging rhythm section – driven by the Balkanic sounds of the Tuba, Manouche Guitar rhythms and Drums- provides the foundations for MCspokeMao to deliver his own style of beat-poetry, with Violin ripping through the melodic lines. Be prepared for anything and make sure to bring along your dancing shoes!
