Music and laughter on a musicians’ holiday

THERE are plenty of opportunities to catch a jam session by a crew of musicians and singers as they enjoy a holiday on the canals.

The Canal Boat Crew will be hosting a series of acoustic nights while travelling the waterways.

Two week-long holidays on the canals of The Black Country and The Potteries will start on September 14, with a different crew of performers aboard the boat each week.

They are not a band as such – in fact most of the crew members will not have met prior to being introduced to each other on the day they all meet at the boatyard.

They have arranged to host musical jam sessions each evening at various venues near to the canals as they travel along.

The sessions will be very relaxed, free to attend and are open to anyone to go along and join in, play, sing or just enjoy the music and laughter.
