The Bert Jansch Foundation supports training of young musicians

The Bert Jansch Studio

The Bert Jansch Studio is a world class recording facility operated by the Cheese & Grain, a not-for-profit social enterprise and music venue in the heart of Frome, Somerset. The building of the studio was jointly funded by the National Lottery, Frome Town Council, the Foyle Foundation and the Bert Jansch Foundation, which was the first funder when the Cheese & Grain started the long process of designing, building and developing the studio.

In addition to the rare analogue equipment sought after by professional recording artists, the studio offers affordable recording services to the local community and work experiences for young people in the area including apprenticeships and employment wherever possible. By working closely with local and national music and youth charities, the studio is accessible to those who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to use it. All profits from the studio feed into the Cheese & Grain and its charities.

The studio has hosted international recording artists including Sir Tom Jones, and has delivered post production services for clients including Nick Cave and Laura Marling, and served as the green room for Paul McCartney when he played a Glastonbury warm up at the Cheese & Grain.
