Singing Traditional Folk Songs with Aubrey Atwater (for all levels, all voices)

TWO Singing Traditional Folk Songs workshops with instructor Aubrey Atwater will be held on Monday, February 13 (focus on love songs of all kinds), AND on Monday, March 20, (Singing in the Spring!), both from 6:00-8:00 p.m. These workshops are designed for all levels of adults and teens. Minimum of 6 students needed to hold each workshop. Fee for each two-hour workshop is $30.00 or $60.00 for both. Prepayment necessary! 

Folk songs leave no stones unturned when it comes to portraying the human experience. Aubrey will present and explore a broad spectrum of traditional Appalachian and Celtic folk songs with themes of work, the sea, humor, love, children's songs, party songs, ballads, longing, nature, spiritual, and more. Sessions are part listening, part discussion, and part group singing. All are also welcome to share songs they know as well. Come sit "knee to knee" with Aubrey for a singing, historical, and cultural adventure! February's workshop will focus on the beauty, humor, and peril of love! The March workshop will explore Spring, nature and rural life through group singing. Bring a song to share!
