Want to play music in Basel?

Hello,

I am a fiddle (violin) player and singer and would love to find other musicians with whom to play here in Basel. I am open to playing in many styles, but particularly enjoy gypsy jazz, bluegrass, celtic, and other folk. I usually play by ear and improvise, but can also read music. I have played in many bands, but am equally happy to have a casual group of friends with whom I meet once every week or two to play tunes.

A little about me: My husband and I moved to Basel from Ithaca, New York a couple of months ago to do research in Ecology at the University of Basel. We will likely be here for four years, and would love to find some other musicians. I haven't played classical violin in some years, but would also love to find a casual classical group (quartet? string orchestra?) to join.

If interested, I'd love to hear about your interests and experience.

Cheers,
Kate

Re: Want to play music in Basel?

Hi Kate,

Sure, I would be interested. I am a chromatic jazz harmonica player (a mouthful...just like the instrument). I am looking for people to play with for fun, to improve and if the opportunity arose to perform.

If you are interested let me know. Now we would need a rhythm instrument...any bass players, pianists or guitarists interested?

Cheers

Rich

Re: Want to play music in Basel?

Hi, I play piano and sing a bit (jazz, blues, country, some pop). Used to play out quite a bit in bars and lounges, but have not found the right venue here in Basel. I am always up for a jam session and have an old upright piano - not ideal for classical but perfect for honky tonk, blues and country. If you guys would like to give it a try, just pm me and we can sort something out. cheers and look forward, sully

Re: Want to play music in Basel?

hmm cool,

i did classical clarinet when I was young and then stopped for a while, just recently started playing a bit again and try to do some jazz, also bought a tenor sax and are fiddling around a bit but I miss a bit of a goal to practice. Would be cool if I could find a group to get my skills up, and play together.

also to get improvisation skills, i'm used to reading from sheet.

Re: Want to play music in Basel?

Sounds really good fun. Wish I could play an instrument :-(
Still, if you ever get any gigs...I'll come and listen to your gypsy folky fiddle ensemble!

Re: Want to play music in Basel?

I am also interested in finding some people to play music with. Is anything happening with this?
I used to play cello and have started practicing again with the idea of eventually finding some people to play with casually. I played with a tango orchestra for a few months and would like to try this again. Have also been teaching myself to play piano-classical and jazz.

Re: Want to play music in Basel?

Hey guys,

Just stumbled on this thread. I'm also living in Basel and would like to either join or put together a band or jam group to play blues/rock.

Aspiration would be finding people who are into improvisational blues/rock/jazz fusion (The Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule and the likes), but since that might be a tall order, playing straight-up good old blues tunes would be great.

Doesn't seem to fit with the above mentioned interests/genres but just thought I might give it a try.

Other than that, if anyone wants to meet to talk about music over drinks I'd be definitely up for that too.

Cheers

Yes, but unfortunately I'm all the way in Luzern
So, this is probably useless information, but if you ever find yourselves in Luzern on a Thursday night, there is live Irish music every week at Gracie Kelly's - and if you like playing the irish stuff, you're welcome to bring your instruments and join in
