New Tricks

New Tricks is soundLINCS’ Older Adults Music Service 16990664_1295206173920472_2136648379_oacross Lincolnshire, supported by funding from Arts Council England and the Postcode Community Trust.

New Tricks is an exciting and inclusive programme, facilitated by soundLINCS to establish and sustain music-making groups across the county.

Having already run in over a dozen locations, join with us to create a dynamic and inspirational music service for older adults across Lincolnshire.

New Tricks is the perfect programme for…

  • Active musicians or complete beginners.
  • Blowing the dust off something you haven’t played since school or if you’re keen to explore a new instrument.
  • Creating your own music or starting to learn your favourite songs.
  • Meeting with like-minded people who love music.

There are opportunities in a huge variety of musical styles, from choral and orchestral to folk and blues. All groups are free to try and will offer opportunities to share your skills with a wider audience, whether through live or digital performances.
