James Fagan Song Workshop, October 2011

This day workshop was open to all singers to come and learn some folk songs - whether already steeped in the tradition or new to it.  James has a rich, tuneful voice and an interest in all sorts of songs from traditional ballads (especially Australian and English) to contemporary writing.  He is well-known as an inspiring workshop leader and is currently a singing teacher on the Newcastle Folk Degree Course.  He enjoys working with singers of all ages and abilities and has a natural flair for communicating his skills and knowledge in a very accessible, enjoyable way.
