Tuned In with Jah Wobble

Tuned In launched in 2019 and is a project which aims to combat some of the issues of loneliness in the London Borough of Merton. Tuned In works with acclaimed musician, performer and writer Jah Wobble (aka John Wardle), who facilitates musical jam sessions every Monday at Merton Arts Space, Wimbledon library.

The sessions share and develop musical skills and build knowledge, as well as helping individuals build social connections and friendship groups. They create an environment for people from all walks of life to come together and enjoy mutual support. The project targets men, particularly those in the age group 50+, where loneliness is at its highest but is open and accessible to all.

 

Since the start of the pandemic Tuned In sessions have moved online and have been delivered through  music production classes.

Participants have enhanced their digital skills and recorded a number of songs ready for a commercial music release. The first single, ‘Uptown Lockdown’, from the upcoming album will be released by Cherry Red Records on Friday 12 March 2021.

For those of you who use Twitter or are curious observers we have set up @TunedIn_LDN to send out regular updates to our participants and followers. We also have a YouTube channel set up to publicise archival recordings and footage of these sessions that have involved esteemed musicians including Jah Wobble and Jon Klein.
