Charlton Central Residents Association (CCRA) has set up two music-making groups which are active in the area. The singing group meets fortnightly and sings mainly for pleasure, but has performed very successfully at local events. The instrumental group, which is known as SE7, plays a wide range of music and has started performing regularly in local venues.
Global Fusion Music and Arts (GFMA) is a local arts charity with whom I work on a number of events and projects, including the Greenwich Blues Band, GFMA Singers, workshops for schools, ceilidhs, concerts and drama/theatre productions.
