Thread Name: Festival Question/Workshops
Subject: RE: BS: Festival Question
Jam etiquette is a good one, I also think songwriting workshops are brilliant. The last one I went to had quite a roomful of people all singing their own songs (great stuff great variety, great bonding) while the workshop leader sang once and a while, showing us how he arrived at each song and how his style had changed over the years. But then we had FOLK DRAMA, which was even better, the WL showed us about putting drama techniques with song to create shows folk opera-type things. Very enjoyable. Very good for funraisers and musicians/singers as it involves having a lot of people on stage.
