About the event
As Winter holds us in it's grip come and immerse yourself in song to nourish and replenish.
We'll spend some time softening our bodies in preparation for singing, exploring the voice as a living instrument, and finding deep relaxation.
Expect plenty of wintery songs and harmonies, as well as a chance to see what your own voice and creativity has to offer as we weave some sponataneous sounds baskets together.
Pearl Legay-Clarke runs Stroud Folk Choir and Sing Ahoy! Dursley Shanty & Folk Choir as well as embarking on a deep study of Vocal Improvisation and voice over the past 3 years. She also brings her workshops to festivals and gatherings, including Shambala, Land Skills Fair, and The Organic Growers gathering. The songs she chooses are centred both in the folk tradition and are often in connection with the seasons, nature and the land and the improvisational games largely stem from her work with one of the pioneer teachers of Vocal Improvisation in the UK, Briony Greenhill, who in turn learned her craft from Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon.
Brigite Rowan will be assisting in this workshop, bringing her gifts of movement and breath as well as her beautiful voice to the workshop.
We'll gather in the gorgeous Miserden Village Hall.
Bring a yoga mat/sheepskin, a blanket and a dish for a bring and share lunch.
