Midsummer Melodies

Chris Rowbury ran a workshop at Wivenhoe's first Midsummer Fete, attended by around 25 people, some singing in a group for the first time - and loving it!
  After a break for July and August, we meet again on 13th September when guest teacher Clive Barker will lead the session at the Scout & Guide Hall, High St. from 2pm to 4.30pm. New songs every session so it's easy to join in any time. No need to book, just pay on the door £8/£6 conc.

June 2014 Tunes & a FREE Workshop

Here are songs from June 7th workshop which we also sang out in the busy Black Buoy pub garden at the end of the session, in glorious sunshine. 

Chris says 'I didn't record Ladum iZulu, but I have put an authentic African version up so people can see how it should be sung! I thought everyone was on cracking form - learnt the songs quickly and sounded really, really good.'
We had some great feedback from the pub garden audience. Someone said 'it sounded really professional, a bit like Gracelands - Paul Simon, I'd like to hear you sing again.' Wow, not bad for a couple of hours learning songs from scratch!!

Don't miss the free workshop at the Midsummer Fete in Wiv on 21st June - a great chance for friends to try it out. Chris will run a 50 minute session starting at 2.30pm.

We're back at the Scout Hall on September 13th with Clive Barker and Chris is with us again from October.
Happy summer time \o/
