Further information:

Having discovered Brendan Taaffe’s compositions through his vocal group Bright Wings Chorus, we have enjoyed excellent singing workshops with him several times in Bath & two wonderful singing weeks in the South of France which he co-led with Jane Harris in 2016 & 2017. We look forward to Brendan’s return to Bath on his 2020 UK tour.

Brendan will bring a rich variety of songs: gospel quartets, songs from his travels in Zimbabwe and elsewhere, and his own beautiful compositions. Songs with compelling rhythms, evocative harmonies, and themes that speak to everyday life, that come from participatory, community-based traditions and draw people together around the world.

The harmonies were wonderful, the pace ideal and the choice of songs inspired.

The founder of Turtle Dove, Brendan is a composer and arranger who has toured with Northern Harmony, and led vocal workshops in Ireland, Bulgaria, England, Scotland, Germany, Holland, Zimbabwe, and the US.
