An exhilarating day of acapella singing for anyone who wants to sing – whether you think you can or not! This workshop will focus on short, quick-to-learn songs for instant rewards and maximum fun. Originally designed so that regular singers could encourage their friends and relatives to have a go at harmony singing, the Relatively Harmonious workshops have proved to be popular with new and experienced singers alike. Whether you come along with a friend, a relative or on your own, this is an opportunity just to sing your socks off! If you have a favourite short Singing for Larks song you’d like to sing again – let me know before the day and I’ll try to include it.
The workshop will be at the Footprint building, the National Trust’s eco-base at St Catherine’s Woods near Windermere in the Lake District National Park. It has been constructed with straw bale walls, car tyre foundations, local timber frames, floors and walkways, an oak shake roof, clay and lime plasters and sheep’s wool insulation. For cold, winter days, there’s a very efficient wood burner. It’s a beautiful and inspirational space, located in an enchanting wood! This venue is accessible to disabled people. It is about a 30 minute drive from the M6. Local buses stop near the end of the drive, on the A 592 Kirkstone Pass. However, the recommended way to travel there is by train to Windermere station and then a 20 minute walk on paths which take you through beautiful woodland and give great views of the lake.
