Musicians Claire Gullan and Kirstie McLanaghan present a collaborative project that combines two of their passions – playing Trad music and art & crafting. These are joyful experiences which can have a positive impact on our mental health, creating a real sense of belonging and connectedness.

The TAM Sessions is an open and informal trad session, but with the lovely additional invitation to bring your sewing, knitting, crochet, or any other crafting project that you enjoy.

Being able to play an instrument is not a pre-requisite and we welcome non-musicians to enjoy the tunes while they craft. In the same vein, please come along for a tune even if you don’t craft. Everyone is welcome!

The driving factor behind this project is joy. A joyful experience has a direct, positive impact on our mental health. Community building through creative arts also creates a real sense of belonging and connectedness. Proficiency is not important, just come along and enjoy!
