Blowzabella 'Vanilla' album Instrumental ensemble

I'll pick some great tunes off the seminal album 'Vanilla' and we'll work up arrangements for our own unique sounding ensemble that will reflect whatever combination of instruments we end up with. 
All instruments welcome. The tunes are great and so will you be. We learn them slowly together, I make suggestions for arrangements and chords and you contribute your own ideas. These are fun and you end up with a. great mix os sound on th MP3's to listen to and share if you want.

Choral Course - Traditonal Songs from Lincolnshire 
Starts 2nd March at 7pm for 4 weeks. 


I am totally in love with traditional song. I have done many song workshops, live, using harmony and have run my own choir. I have many traditional folk song books. I would like to begin working my way through them sharing with you my own three and four part arrangements. We'll start with some songs collected by Percy Grainger. All parts are supplied on. score and in MP3 form. You can sing one chosen part or all of them. The sessions are fun and the sound you create will be fabulous as I will do a mix of our ensemble songs. Our voices are not being used as frequently as they were so having a minimum of a weekly sing is good exercise, releases endorphins and helps us feel better about the world.
