Workshop with Brendan Taaffe

Wednesday 15th March, 2017 – 7.30 to 9.30pm

Join acclaimed American song leader and composer Brendan Taaffe in Winchester for a lovely evening of singing.  Brendan teaches a variety of music: American bluegrass, gospel, Appalachian ballads, shape note, songs learned during trips in Africa, and his own wonderful compositions and arrangements.  Brendan will give you the chance to sing songs with compelling rhythms and evocative harmonies that come from community-based traditions that draw people together around the world.

He has led vocal workshops in many different countries, and is the founder of Turtle Dove, an organisation which runs singing camps and vocal workshops in America.

Brendan is an experienced, adaptable and charismatic leader: good humoured, patient, and has bags of energy!

All parts will be taught by ear and no experience is necessary. This workshop is open to all.


Cost in advance: £12.50 full/£10 low income.
