Recovery AllStars!


Umbrella Arts goes out with a bang with a performance by the Recovery AllStars. For a number of years SoCo Music Project has provided weekly jamming sessions for Society of St James’ Pathfinder Recovery Group, a group that supports adults with alcohol and substance misuse issues. It forms a key component of many service users’ recovery programme. Having developed several music-making courses over a number of years in partnership with Society of St James, this current offer supports a core group of aspiring musicians to hone their musical skills by learning and performing cover songs and composing their own material.
