Song workshop, Oct 09, with Sam Lee

In this fun and practical workshop Sam presented the rich and varied songs and singing styles native to these islands.  He explored the riches present in our balladic and oral tradition, as well as the laments, work songs, shanties, rounds and ditties that have been sung throughout history.  We experimented with vocal techniques, harmonies, improvisation and listened to field recordings of some of the timeless and ancient voices captured in the field.  Here's some of the feedback:
  • Sam Lee was a joy – thanks for arranging this.
  • Very interesting meeting lots of people who all enjoy music.  Excellent.
  • This is awesome!!!  I want more! 
  • So good to have the opportunity to work with a coach.  Very enjoyable, stimulating day – more please.
  • Great approach from tutor – loved his teaching style.  
  • Excellent – Sam Lee is a really motivating practitioner.  Looking forward to the next one!
