Trad Arts Team News July 2020

Our Birmingham venues are closed and we are all missing our events and local audiences.  Unfortunately, in the last few months and unknown to us, our newsletters have not been going out.  So we are moving to Mailchimp, and will be sending out separate messages for storytelling and for song.  These will contain links to the different events - if you don't get messages from us please let us know and we will add you to the new setup.

Storytelling Cafe and Tales & Ales have gone online with Zoom so you can still join us for evenings of storytelling.  So why don’t you pour yourself a glass of something cool and zoom in to join us for nights of virtual stories.  A message went out last Thursday about two July events - email us if you haven't had the link.

The traditional and political song sessions have both gone online with Zoom so you can still join us for evenings of singing.  Some of you may not have been to sessions for a while or you may live some distance away.  But it can be enjoyable to see familiar faces and hear familiar songs, and you can always join in the chorus at home.  A message went out today about three July events - email us if you haven't had the link.

Many new songs are being written and THE POLITICAL SONGSTER is now on-line with regular updates.  So if you have songs, send them to us, and if you'd like to try some out you can view or download them from: 

Music and dance sessions don't work so well with Zoom, but we had a Scandi session on 10 May which was quite enjoyable.  So there will be another in July - a message about this will go out shortly.
