A GROUP of musicians who toured the world with internationally renowned legendary acts have visited Hereford during a UK tour showcasing the possibilities open to students.

Hereford College of Arts is one of several colleges to be rocked by the Resonance Roadshow band as it stops by to show prospective students what the brand new state-of-the-art music institute, based in Dudley, is all about.

Organisers of the roadshow have been using the tour to highlight the myriad of careers available in the music industry, many of which are covered by the degree courses on offer at Resonance.

The Resonance Roadshow visited Hereford College of Arts today, Wednesday, October 9 and were joined by singer-songwriter Samantha Dorrance who is also a children's TV presenter.

Other musicians at the Folly Lane college included guitarist Greg Platt Lake, who has worked all over the world with acts such as Steve Winwood and Robert Plant.

Co-director Rick Benton assembled a band of talented musicians to help demonstrate how Resonance could kick-start a career in the music industry.

He said: "For us it's just like gigging which many of us have done for years, but these roadshows are a unique way for us to demonstrate to young people considering a career in music how great coming to Resonance will be for them.

"It will be one of the best institutes of its kind in the country and I have no doubt that a lot of people will thrive in the learning environment we are creating."

As well as performing songs and engaging students in music techniques, the sessions provided a wider picture about careers in music.

Resonance will be offering degree courses in popular music performance, popular music production, popular music performance & production, digital music and music business from 2020.
