​As you may well know, the ‘Engine Room’ is a nickname given to bass and drums (the rhythm section) in a band. It’s arguably where a bands power and movement come from, and some say it can be a thankless job as people don’t appreciates what a good engine room does!

This workshop will look at the role of bass and drums in music, and in blues music in particular.
Expect: a bass and drum talk on the history and development of the rhythm section, examples of styles and techniques, questions from the floor and finally, jamming with the band and guests.

On hand will be a drummer and bass player to explain how their instruments have developed, and together they will show how the two work together in the engine room of a band.

They will demo styles such as swing, Latin, slow blues and shuffles in various forms, before they open up the show to questions from the floor and invite guests onto the stage.

All you need to participate is a ticket for the event – either a Sunday ticket, or a full weekend ticket.
