Join Jules and I in our weekly online old time session whilst we ride through this lockdown! We did a trial run on the 24th March which I think worked!
Tuesdays 8pm UK time.
Sundays Slow Jam 8pm UK time
7.30pm Zoom ‘doors’ open for greetings.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Tune into the YouTube link and find the live stream or join us on Zoom(details below). Plug your device you are watching us to some louder speakers and go get your instrument and join us!
We won’t be able to hear you like on Skype but you will see and hear us..
CHAT TO US! HANG OUT IN ZOOM EARLY BEFORE SESSION START TIME
If you sign in to zoom early to hang out with friends which I aim to get running half an hour before. We could also help each other do any fine tuning on set up in Zoom.
I’ll try and post when Zoom is running!
Please chat to us in the YouTube chat so we know you are there and give us tune requests!

LATENCY DELAY ISSUES?
yes of course there are, but again you will only hear us but can join in and see each other.. between tunes we can chat and request tunes. During tunes we will mute you. Technical work arounds so please don’t take offence on being muted!
PRIVACY ON YOUTUBE & ZOOM
Sessions are promoted within old time communities on Facebook and old time newsletters. The sessions are inviting players but some players may invite people to watch which I will not know about.
As we have recently started to broadcast Zoom on Youtube.. I would like to ask you to rename yourselves to a nickname or first names only. If you are unable to, we will do this if you sign in on Zoom early and can change your names for you before broadcast..
If you do not wish your face to show on YouTube, but remain on Zoom to see each other, then you can turn the camera off and will not be on Youtube.
Youtube videos will also be removed after a few days in respect for privacy of Zoom users.
Please don’t forget this technology is all new for us and me too and these sessions are still being developed which includes learning to use Zoom!

These sessions take up a lot of free time to set up, promote and make ongoing improvements. There are some expenses to run with streaming software but I mainly want to keep this free for the benefit and well being of others to help at this time of the pandemic crisis. It has been very rewarding to see everyone play music together, share and learn tune and to have people meet each other, make new friends or catch up using Zoom online and I am grateful to facilitate this. As a community event, it may be possible to get funding which I have yet to look into.
