STANDARD: ELEMENTARY, LOWER/UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

There are a wealth of traditional English folk songs, from lyrical tales of love and loss to ancient dark ballads, jolly tales of sailors and pirates to fantastical tales of the supernatural! Spend the course finding your inner folk singer and exploring stylistic techniques, listening to archive recordings of traditional singers and creating your own vocal harmonies. Workshops will be taught as a class with lots of opportunity for working in smaller groups and learning useful tools for solo singing, and we'll be working alongside the Building a Folk Band course so there will be the chance for collaboration. No previous experience of singing folk songs is required and songs will be learnt by ear with texts provided. The fee also includes a ticket to Laurel Swift and Hazel Askew’s concert on Tuesday 30 January.
