Thread Name: Soundpost Wanton Seed Singing Weekend-June 2018
Subject: RE: Soundpost Wanton Seed Singing Weekend
I haven't got a copy of the programme yet with timings but I think the website has a list of what each performer is doing. I know there is an introductory session on the Friday evening as I'm involved in that. Other than that my 2 workshops which will involve plenty of opportunity for discussion are:

Recycling Song: Adding to the tradition. Basically how we have used traditional song in various ways to make new songs. Mostly involving local heritage projects. Lots of examples.

Oral Tradition and Print: In which I'll be expanding on the introduction in The Wanton Seed and looking at how Popular Song, Street Literature and Oral Tradition have interacted over the centuries. Again lots of examples.

I know some of the others are offering more practical performance related sessions.
