Technically this is part of Solstice Shorts. We are running a workshop on Saturday 28th November, and profits will go to help pay for the main event on 21st December, so the more the merrier – we have room for another 10 people.
Come and learn secular songs for winter from Lester Simpson, one of the loveliest people we know, and a damn fine singer, song writer and arranger of traditional songs. Oh and he teaches incredibly well: fun, relaxed, intensive. 25 pounds (my keyboard has gone American for the day, I can’t find the pound sign). Book here or through our crowd fund campaign. We provide lots of refreshments!
Likely repertoire: about 5 songs from the following
The White Shepherd
The Solstice Carol
George Dunn’s Wassail
Bring Him On
The Coppers Christmas Song
Green growth The Holly
Winter is i cummen inn (round)
Yes I know, I thought secular would mean no Christmas, but actually in this context just no religion. Great songs, 3 or 4 part harmony, learnt by ear. no previous experience necessary, suits all abilities.
