A folk singing group has recently been started. We plan to sing traditional & contemporary folk songs, covering material from the British Isles and around the world, including Folk, Country, ‘Americana’, Sea Shanties, Gospel, Blues and Pop.
The material would suit male and female voices. There is no requirement to have any previous formal singing experience, to read music or knowledge of the material: just an interest and a willingness to have a go. Enjoyment is the key. No auditions !
Although some of us have a background in folk singing, nobody has formal music training. A small steering group is organising sessions and looking for material. It might also be useful if some people played instruments but we are mainly looking at songs that suit unaccompanied voices.
If you have any queries, would like to talk about the group, or put your name forward, please contact: Neil Stretton (above)
