Folk Singing

Tutor: Tom Patterson

The folk singing course is for people who want to have a go at learning and singing traditional and contemporary folk songs. The course will cater for participants of varying levels of experience, ability and musical background.

This programme will continue to feature songs on a particular theme - this year the focus will be on songs that are associated with a place or geographical area.

Participants will be encouraged to learn the songs and develop them for a performance for students attending other courses. There will be opportunities to try solo singing in an environment which is supportive and non-judgemental.

The tutor will provide guitar accompaniment for a number of the songs and musicians that wish to join in are encouraged to bring their instruments, although there will be no formal instrumental tuition on this course.

The course is intended to be fun - no prior experience of singing folk music is required.
