The Folk Choir is a friendly, supportive group of singers who together explore the world of traditional Anglo-Celtic song. Our repertoire includes songs in two, three and four-part harmony. We sing call-and-response songs such as shanties, a ballad or two from the Child collection, and works by contemporary folk songwriters.
Each night starts with vocal warmups and short songs. We then work on parts for new songs, and finally finish with a big sing, where members are encouraged to experiment with creating harmonies. There’s no need to be able to read music, and there’s no audition, just come and enjoy singing.
Directed by Nicole Murray from cloudstreet, The Folk Choir is a fun way to sing with others and learn more about traditional music.
Thursdays 7.15 – 8.45pm, West Ashgrove, Brisbane.
