Jake Bugg to hold songwriting master classes at London’s Royal Albert Hall

Students aged 16-18 will have the opportunity to perform live with singer-songwriter

Jake Bugg will give songwriting tips to teenagers at two seminars held at London’s Royal Albert Hall later this month (February).

The singer-songwriter will speak to 16-18 year old students from the London area on February 17 and again on February 21. The masterclasses will see Bugg teach the students how to play his song ‘Broken’, with one student from the second class getting the opportunity to play the song with Bugg at his Royal Albert Hall concert later that night.

“I am truly honoured to be hosting these workshops at the Royal Albert Hall,” said Bugg of the event. “We need initiatives like this to inspire young musicians. This will be my first time performing at the Royal Albert Hall too. It’s such an iconic venue and so many of my idols that inspired me have performed there. I can’t believe I am following in their footsteps.”


Jake Bugg will perform at the Royal Albert Hall as part of a short UK tour.

Jake Bugg will play:

Newcastle, City Hall (February 16)
London, Royal Albert Hall (21)
Edinburgh, Corn Exchange (22)
Manchester, Ritz (23)
