The Watersons

 - Sweet Hurricane

The Watersons were a family singing group from Yorkshire. Two sisters, their brother & a family mate. They became icons of the folk song revival when in 1963 they gobsmacked the famous Troubadour Folk Club in London's Earls Court when they walked on stage with no instruments & belted out Three Score & Ten a song of the 1889 disaster which struck the British East Coast fishing Fleet. That was over fifty years ago & their records & the songs that they gave to the folk scene are as good as the day we first heard them. Come & join in the rousing chorus’ & relive those great songs.


Festival Choir

 - Lois Johnston (Cafe Operana)

Do you remember singing when you were a child? Do you dream of feeling that same sense of freedom and lack of inhibition? Join Lois in a variety of vocal workshops designed to explore better breathing techniques, improve confidence and attain greater freedom in our singing. Lois' classes are created for all levels of ability - especially for those who think they "can't" sing and there will be time for some individual "troubleshooting". The workshop will culminate in a performance of a rousing opera chorus in Italian.
