The new Media Studio at the Cheese and Grain will open in September 

The studio will provide facilities for musicians/bands to rehearse, record their music and capture their work on film. It will also be a location for training and the development of music/film related technical skills.

 

The new studio is being named after the innovative and influential guitarist/songwriter Bert Jansch. The late Bert Jansch synthesized folk, blues and jazz. His work was inspirational, fusing innovation with the traditional, so he is the perfect musician to capture and represent the vision behind this project.

The likes of Jimmy Page, Neil Young, Nick Drake, Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Beth Orton have all been devotees, many other musicians cover his work and now a new generation of musicians and fans are discovering Jansch for themselves. Bert’s son, Adam, also a talented musician, lives with his family in Frome and is helping to drive the project forward.

The studio with a key role in contributing to a new economy for Frome, based on creativity, music and performance and cutting-edge technologies.

The Bert Jansch Foundation and the Frome Development Community Interest Company helped to fund the design and development work.

Large capital grants followed from the Lottery and Frome Town Council (FTC).

Frome Town Council contribution is entirely funded by income from the large spread of clean electricity generating solar panels that FTC had the forethought to install on the C&G roof.

Look out over the coming months for ways to access/use and help develop the studio.
