Next Wednesday, 3rd February will find us back at the former Police Academy in room B4 just on the other side of the corridor.

The theme of the day is the blues. There's  a lot of relevant information to be found at the following link :

The 4 links below are the Story of Sister Rosetta Tharpe who had a large influence on modern rock music.

See you Wednesday
