MUSICIANS can share skills and network with people at a new group which has been launched in Topsham.
Singers, instrument players and composers of both a professional standard and those aspiring to make it to such a level of competency, can join the Topsham Music Connective community group.
The venture was founded by Ben Beeson, who lives on The Strand. Ben, a musician himself, also helps out as a tutor for the town's rock school.
He said: "We set out to make the Topsham music connective as relevant to musicians as possible and our regular meetings and gigs will play a key part in that."
