A few instruments have been donated to this charity to be made available for people to borrow for a limited period of time. Purchasing an instrument can be an expensive outlay, especially if you are unsure if you are going to “take to it” and you are not sure this is the type of instrument you want to learn.
We also are aware that many people have never had an opportunity to try different instruments and have always wondered if they would enjoy playing one, so we are committed to having “taster sessions” where people can come and have a try. Once we have obtained a good range of instruments we will have a traveling road show and visit the Isles and more remote Parishes.
We are regularly asked to hire out instrument to tourist visiting the Island as they wish to join in some of the informal “tune” sessions .This bank of instruments will be made available to them for hire.
If you have a musical instrument that is no longer used and is just gathering dust but is in good order, we would be delighted to accept it into our “bank”.
