Danny gives drum sessions

WESTON man Danny Farrant, drummer of the Buzzcocks, will be returning to the South West to give a series of drumming workshops in Bristol.
Danny has devised a ‘Massive Drum Jam’ session for young drummers of all levels, in which 20 participants learn and put together an explosive group performance - all in the space of two hours.
The sessions will run three times daily on June 2 and 3 at Coexist, the community creative space in Hamilton House, Stokes Croft and is aimed at young people aged 11-18.
Danny, who is on a break from a World tour, has taught drums since his teenage years in Weston and is keen to provide the same experiences that shaped his musical career.
“As a kid being dragged up in Weston I was very lucky that a few energetic people understood what we needed as aspiring young musicians was the opportunity to develop our skills and learn the art of communicating the music to an audience,” said Danny.
“I played in many local West country organisations, such as Weston Youth Orchestra, The County of Avon Schools Orchestra and the Burnham Town Band. I really can’t express enough the value of those experiences”
Danny has teamed up with local production company shootme.com, who will film each of the six performances. Students will be able to get a DVD or downloadable video of their performance.
