An unusual celebration of ‘Bass, Beer and BBQ’ was held at Stubborn Mule Brewery in Radium House, Altrincham.
The event was organised by double bass maker and repairer Sam Wells, whose workshop is located above the brewery, to commemorate finishing his first instrument since relocating from London in 2014.
Sam welcomed friends and customers who enjoyed plenty of beer and a barbecue, and professional and amateur bassists also had a chance to play on the inaugural Northern instrument before it departs for the Royal Northern College of Music.
