Thread Name: Just Voices Singers’ Session – Hunslet (Yorks.)
Subject: New Singers' Session - Birstall (Yorks.)
Starting on Tuesday 25th February 2014 and then on the last Tuesday of each month: "Just Voices", a new singaround/session for unaccompanied singers only (no instruments).
Venue: The Black Bull Inn, Kirkgate, Birstall, West Yorks. WF17 9PB (UK), in upstairs function room with good acoustics. Friendly and welcoming pub, good beer.
Starts 8 pm prompt. Free admission.
To quote the flyer:
"The aim of this friendly singaround/session is the sharing of good songs: whether they be traditional or contemporary; rousing chorus songs and harmonies; or solo ballads". (This might also include the occasional monologue or poem, I understand.... )
And before any musicians get the chance to be offended - this is the first gathering to cater specifically for unaccompanied singers that I can recall in the Yorkshire area, in quite some time (it's a good ten years since the popular and long-lived Otley Red Lion singers' session folded).
After all, there are plenty of sessions for musicians only, so why not one for singers only, just for a change?
As well as singer-participants, listeners (audience) are also most welcome.
Come and give it a try!
