Surprise! 🇩🇪 I’m in Germany with Jack McRobbie and Callum Morton-Teng doing two gigs on Sunday 16th August. My first and last gigs since lockdown! We’ve had lots of fun whizzin about on these scooters seeing Bielefeld, and now comes the music!
Was delighted to have been asked to sing “When Mandela Danced in the Square” for Nelson Mandela Scottish Memorial Foundation’s online celebration and fundraiser as part of Mandela Day. The song was written by Ian Davison. I heard it from a recording of the wonderful Anne Neilson.
This will focus on the process of sourcing, interpreting, editing, arranging a ballad and will guide members through several of my favourite online (FREE) folksong and ballad resources and archives.
You don’t need any resources or books, just access to Zoom. Resources will be sent to you. Your ticket ensures you get three workshops so you get more out of the classes and can do your research between classes. This is open to beginners. This class is limited to 15 people so it will not be a big class and plenty of space to learn and ask questions.
📺 LIVESTREAM – 4th July – 20:00 I’ll be streaming an hour and a half long live show on my Facebook page and on YouTube. The stream will be saved for rewatching. A suggested donation of £5.00 can be taken at: bit.ly/2NssBgI Bandcamp is once again waiving their artist fee’s so everything goes to the artists. New ballad release: bit.ly/38pupAH
