Join us a day of heart-felt singing while we explore the richness of world harmony traditions: the songs will include traditional American harmony (early gospel, Appalachian ballads, shape note hymns), Zimbabwean makwayera singing, and Brendan’s original compositions. All parts will be taught by ear and no experience is necessary—singing is a birthright for all of us, so come and sing.
Spring Sing this year will be a whole day workshop with the wonderful Brendan Taaffe; a world famous singing workshop leader and composer all the way from Vermont, USA.
It’ll be held on Sunday 12th March, 10am-4pm, in The Grange, Midhurst, West Sussex. It’s a lovely new venue with lots of free parking in a very beautiful and historic town with some good places to eat nearby.
This whole day event will cost £40. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
