To coincide Eileen Simpson and Ben White’s (Open Music Archive) Everything I Have Is Yours, an artists’ film that looks back to the first decade of the UK pop charts (1952 – 62), Salford Museum and Art Gallery is hosting a series of free workshops and events for the public to get involved in.
DJ JAM is an inter-generational workshop offering the chance to turn your hand at DJ-ing, with music and beats inspired by a range of genres. The workshop is delivered jointly by El Statiko (previous winner of the DJ Championships and Unity Radio DJ) and Age Friendly Network’s DJ Ged who specialises in sharing music from the 1950-1960s to communities across the North West.
People can come and have a go at using CD-Jays, turntables and techniques such as scratching. Suitable for all ages to come and have a go.
