Two days of workshops to bring leaders and singers interested in group work together for creative singing, songwriting and discussion forum in Kildare August 2017

I am delighted to have been invited up to Kildare to work with those involved in bringing singers together in their local community in the Naas area. The workshops are open to new interest and are free!

A new Singing Group for Men in Ballydehob September 2017

After the great success of a few taster sessions with a group of guys earlier on this summer, the Roaring Water Boys (named after the bay) will be starting up for men to come together and enjoy singing in an informal and relaxed setting. We will be meeting upstairs in Rosies Bar, Ballydehob on Monday evenings from 8-10pm.

I am really looking forwards to more singing with these guys, which is a real change for me as I feel I have been leading all female groups for so long now.

All men in the area are welcomed to come along to have a listen to what we are up to.

Catch a Choir Day and BIG SING! for choirs in Ballincollig for Mental Health Week in October 2017

The next West Cork BIG SING! event is well into it’s planning stages now as we prepare for a collaboration with Ceol na Laoi – Ballincolligs’ Community Choir, to mark Mental Health Week on Saturday 14th October. Local choirs with a focus on mental health and inclusive singing will be performing their songs for free in a number of venues around Ballincollig to promote singing as an inclusive activity for community wellbeing. Further information on the choirs and locations they can be heard in will be confirmed soon. To follow, the participating choirs will enjoy an evening of performing for each other and share in a BIG SING! together to close the day.

The GraceNotes project comes together with the Clonakilty Jazz Collective to perform in De Barras in December 2107

The next GraceNotes Vocal Performance Project will be working with the Clonakilty Jazz Collective to bring together a short set to perform at the Sunday Jazz Sessions in De Barras on 10th December which runs between 3-5pm at the Folk Club. Following an impromptu jam together at the Jazz Session earlier this summer we decided that we’d like the opportunity to share some more music together. This set will touch on blues and soul and will also feature another of my own compositions, ‘Shine a little Love’ which will be sung a-cappella.
