UK student concert

Hi all,

The yearly UK shamisen student concert is approaching quickly! Like last year, we are also so lucky to have Shamisen Berlin join us, as well as a special guest… so far it looks like there will be around 20-30 performers which is a great turnout, and it will also be a good opportunity for beginners/people thinking of starting to see the real deal and ask questions. I’ve attached a photo of last year’s turnout

Hope to see you there!

Dear Everyone
