West Gallery Music (2013 - 2013)
Folk musician, Tim Laycock and Serpent player, Phil Humphries of the Melstock Band will lead a series of workshops this autumn in the style of West Gallery Music.
This style of music is the name describing the harmony songs that used to be sung in English country churches from the 18th century onwards. The music was vibrant and full of life and is accessible today to all singers and instrumentalists, from amateur to professional, as it was then.
The workshops will take place at Strangways Village Hall, Abbotsbury on Sun 20th October, Sun 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th November from 3pm-5pm. The project will culminate in two carol concerts at St Mary's Church, Winterborne Abbas on Sun 1st Dec and St Nicholas' Church, Abbotsbury on Sun 8th December.
Workshops places £20 in total. To book, please phone 01305 269512. You will be asked to send a cheque made payable for the full amount to confirm your place.
