Join us for an exciting new music project in February to celebrate the connection between Bridgwater and the late Joe Strummer. Take part in a workshop and live performance – all levels of musicianship welcome.

Saturday 5th February is ‘International Clash Day’ as started by KEXP, a radio station in Seattle USA  https://www.kexp.org/internationalclashday/. In celebration of the cultural contribution of former local resident Joe Strummer and the connection between his band’s ethos and Bridgwater’s identity including being ‘a rebel town’, Seed is holding a local event on this day. It will be a ‘Flash mob’ style public performance at the CornHill, Bridgwater where every guitarist of any standard in Sedgemoor can join a backing band in playing ‘Should I stay or should I go’. The event will be live streamed worldwide, including via KEXP as an official event of the day.

Seed is providing, creating and delivering effective learning materials (written and video) with Your Guitar Academy and leading up to the event we will hold a workshop (in Bridgwater), enabling even beginner guitarists who only know one or two chords to participate.  At the workshop, intending participants will have a group lesson and practice playing the song together.  On the day, John D Revelator will provide the foundation for the performance for participants to join in with.

The performance will be amplified but at a sufficiently low volume that acoustic guitars and small practice amps can be used. We will provide a number of these to assist those who don’t own an amp.
