Report from Ronnie Scott's Instrument Amnesty

Posted by paul43 on July 11, 2015 at 12:15 PM

The first instrument collection for Music Fund in the UK on 11th July was a resounding success, with more than 100 instruments collected at Ronnie Scott's Jazz club, ranging from brand new unplayed instruments on the one hand, to a clarinet that has sat in a cupboard unplayed for more than 40 years.  All will be assesed and those that are repairable will be sent around the UK and world to be played by a child or young person who needs it.    This is Christian Betram, one of Music Fund's instrument repairers, assessing a donated guitar.  We are very grateful to Ronnie Scott's for the organisation, hosting, and PR.   We hope it will be the start of a longstanding productive relationship.
