Team Rig!

As well as Becky & Amy, you might also meet Harry on your travels. Harry is an awesome jazz drummer and trained at Leeds College of Music and Trinity Laban. He likes sticking drumsticks in his hair and making lots of noise. His favourite bit of The Rig is the Rhythm Rig. Harry is also one of our Workshop Facilitators so you might see him at a school near you!

Indigo loves playing the Broomstomp. She is also an artist extraordinaire and has drawn a few little gems for The Rig. She’s a great guitarist and singer and loves passing on her musical knowledge to the next generation of little musicians.

Then we have the lovely Edu, Amy’s husband, which we’re sure has nothing to do with why he’s volunteered at festivals with us in the past! Edu is from Argentina and knows a mean South American groove or two!

This is the wonderful Poppy – ever full of energy and positivity, she brings a brilliant creativity to our Rig days. A fabulous photographer and snow boarder, she is also a fantastic singer/songwriter..phew…we’re so lucky to have such talent!

Jo the drummer – another one! One to watch out for, he is a graduate from the Brit school and is headed for great things. An asset to our team, friendly and a young trend setter. First to name our oven tray headphones the ‘Magic Grill’!

Meg is one of our team from the Valleys in Wales. She is a graduate from Trinity College of music and is an amazing cellist and singer/songwriter. We love her friendly eclectic approach to music!

Becky is one of our newest workshop leaders. An amazing singer, percussionist and teacher extraordinare! She also dares to bare the mud at our summer festivals, so you may meet her in a field somewhere.

This is Tom – he plays a mean tune on the cello – we love our cellists! He has joined our workshop team and you can also see him in some of our Rig TV videos… what a star!
Anna is one of our newest team rig members. Becky has been her piano teacher for ten years and has been teaching her since she was 7! Anna loves the oven tray headphones and seeing the delight in the kids eyes when they try it for the first time and hear the magical sounds.

Meet Louise! She’s another Broomstomp fan. Louise is a talented jazz singer and is currently studying jazz voice at Trinity Laban. Ask her for a tune when you see her next!

Last of all is Drew! Drew helps us out with our festival tours by being a big strong boy and helping set everything up. He has also come up with many a good suggestion on the practical side of things. Everyone needs a Drew!
