It’s all about folk song, and it’s all in good company! Whether you want a damn good sing in the bar, to hear and share new songs, to improve your voice or to create songs of your own, this is the weekend for you.
Bob & Gill Berry host this all=-singing weekend, with guest leaders TBA.
Singers of all ages (teenagers to pensioners) and abilities are welcome to join the fun, in the comfortable and relaxed surroundings of Halsway Manor. ‘Singin’ in the Bar’ (with everyone having a chance to lead chorus songs or share their favourites – if they want to) when the bar is open, and opportunities to explore songs and individual singing in between, learn how to look after your voice and performance, or have a ramble around the glorious countryside – it’s up to you! You’re welcome to bring accompanying instruments if you wish. The extensive folk library will also be open throughout the weekend should you wish to delve into the collection.
There’s also the option of staying on for the Sunday night: 5pm Leaders’ Concert, followed by supper and a Survivors’ Song Session!
Who’s it For?
This is a friendly weekend is for singers of all ages and abilities to enjoy and explore traditional song in a convivial and supportive atmosphere, with opportunities to learn how to look after and improve your voice and performance.
