Further information:

Join a fabulous day on the Settle Carlisle railway, singing folk carols in the stations and on the trains from Ribblehead to Appleby and Settle stations, with a meeting of several groups of singers at Ribblehead  where we will meet other choirs coming from Settle and beyond.
Then all the choirs singing together on the train to Settle, and a fabulous evening singing together in the Royal Oak pub and singing on the station.

Day starts with a workshop in Settle station learning (or revising) the harmonies for these folk carols.

Then off to sing in Appleby station and the Midland hotel bar, and on the train south to Settle, picking up the Cowgill Folk Chorale singers at Dent Station en route.

At Ribblehead we will sing with the other singers in the station at lunch time and in the Station Inn nearby – then all singing together on the train south to Settle where Janet Russell and Settle Voices are hosting a session for us in the Royal Oak.

Words, recordings and written music for the carols can be sent in advance for home study. Lift shares to Langwathby can be arranged, and some of our singers have offered a bed for the night if you are coming from afar.
