A few weeks ago I was privileged to be invited to join the fretted instruments workshop which has been meeting regularly since October. Players of guitars and other fretted instruments, including a cello, have developed their skills under the guidance of Stefan Mniszko.
This workshop has been a real Rusthall Community Arts success story attracting teenagers to those aged over 60.
There are now approximately 18 attendees and the group has expanded so much that it’s outgrowing its current venue in the “back room” of the Rusthall Club in St Paul’s Street.
Stefan, an experienced musician and teacher, leads the group and sings as well.
The group of players, now known as the Rusties, will be performing in the Rusthall Club, St Pauls Street, on Friday 23rd June (7pm - 11pm), along with other inspiring musicians from the local community, in preparation for a performance during our festival weekend in September.
Anyone who wishes to improve their playing of the guitar, ukulele or cello is encouraged to contact Stefan to enquire about opportunities to join the Rusties.
