Another year gone by and another great day of singing! Thanks to Ciaran and Vicky from Ardu for leading us throughout the day and to everyone who came along to join us. More photos of the day will be going up onto the website shortly…..
Looking forward to joining with other local for this fundraising event in support of the Bantry Bay Save the Kelp Campaign.
Come and join an uplifting afternoon of singing a great selection of songs from a variety of backgrounds in a relaxed and informal environment. You will find us in the upstairs room at the Community Co-op in Scarriff. All are welcome and no previous experience or ability to read music needed. The workshop starts promptly at 2pm and we aim to finish for 5pm. We will have a short break in the middle for refreshments which will be provided.
Cost of workshop is E15 when paid before Sunday 10th November, or E20 thereafter. Booking advised as numbers are restricted. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s a wee taster of what we did for the Festival….Enjoy!Thanks to Phil at Feile Africa for putting the video together.
What a brilliant time I had at the annual Che do Bheatha Festival in Kilkee last weekend! My first visit and so many lovely people to meet! About 25 singers turned up to learn some 4 part harmony songs which we then performed on stage to a wonderfully appreciative audience – who I also got to join in!! Hope to return again some time soon!
On Wednesday 24th July, I’ll be bringing two Music Workshops into the community of Youghal. This will be my first visit with my music and I’m really excited about meeting new people to share with.
From 1-2pm there will be a Family Music Workshop held in the Methodist Hall on Friar Street. This workshop is aimed at parents and children between 4-10 years old, and is designed as a fun learning opportunity for building confidence and developing musical skills together. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and all adults are expected to join in with the activities! An entrance fee of E5 per person is being asked to help cover expenses.
From 4-6pm, I’ll be leading a Harmony Singing Workshop in Celtic Folk Song. This is part of the programme organised by the Youghal Creative Cultural Pop Up Shop running from 114, North Main Street over the months of July and August. Adults and young people who love to sing are welcome to come along and enjoy learning these harmony-filled songs in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. No previous experience or ability to read music is needed as I teach with a ‘call and response’ approach, making it easy for everyone to join in. This workshop is free of charge.
What a great weekend we had! Thanks to all who joined me at the Pop-Up Jazz Choir Workshop followed by performing on the street….we were great!! You can get a taste of it on this video around 5.25-7.50. Hopefully we’ll do it again next year!
