Our facilitators of song:

Tembre de Carteret:

Tembre is hosting the We May Sing Zoom events from her home is County Clare.
Tembre has been leading men, women and children in song in Ireland for 19 years. As a singer she feels blessed that she has been able to have music as her passion and her job. Her roles are as a choir leader, community musician, mentor, early years music educator and performer. Tembre leads in a natural organic way, creating a safe, held and fun space, inclusive of heart and exploration. Tembre has a love and passion for singing, easy melodies and harmonies that is accessible able to all. She will be hosting this event for us all from her home in County Clare where she lives with her family.

Maria Wood:

Maria is a song leader based in Ennistymon, Co. Clare and runs a singing for wellness group, an all men’s group, two community song circles and a singing class for people who believe (or who have been told) they cannot sing. Maria is passionate about the fact that we all have a voice that should be allowed to be used in song. No one is exempt from this category, no matter what story you have been told. To sing is to be whole, to be free and to be connected to ourselves and others. Maria has now adapted to leading on line circles and has some new offerings coming soon.

Candy Verney:

Candy Verney’s passion is to inspire and create, through singing, a sense of harmony which gives an experience beyond the ordinary. Over the last 5 years she has fulfilled a dream of a lifetime, by living in Ireland, renovating and developing an inspirational retreat centre in wilds of Co Donegal, Ireland – Teach na nAmhrán/The Song House. She runs singing holidays and choir leadership trainings there. More information at www.thesonghouseireland.com.
From 2013 – 2015 Candy developed The Trowbridge Song Project, with the aim of building friendship and community between people from many countries, by sharing their songs. We had 3 big concerts, with acts from Africa, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Jamaica, Tibet, Poland, Guyana, and massed choirs involving hundreds of singers. You can see videos on YouTube.
For 20 years Candy developed and directed a group of 5 choirs in Bath and West Wiltshire called “Singing in the Round”, as well as a performance choir Sounding it Out. These have been the catalyst for many other choirs forming, so that now every town in the area has a community choir.
She has written 3 books of songs for Choirs, including the The Song House book Irish songs: https://thesonghouseireland.com/the-song-house-book-of-irish-songs/
Candy’s work encompasses The Song House, Co Donegal, Singing holidays- Singing on the Wild Side; Soul Soundings; Community Choir Leadership Trainings.
