Announcing a new series of events for the Glasgow Ballad Workshop, starting with a taught ballad on Sunday 28th August, a guest afternoon on Sunday 18th September, a special Hallowe'en singaround on Sunday 30th October and a final taught ballad on 27th November.

Space is limited, so booking is essential, via the clicky link (fingers crossed!), and it would be lovely to see some Mudcatters there.

Thanks to Joe for past patience -- the clicky link worked!

We have a controversial ballad chosen for August, an eerie ballad for October, and a blood-boltered one for November!

And our special guests in September are Tom and Margaret Spiers from Aberdeenshire: Tom has sung and fiddled - sometimes simultaneously - since the 1960s, drawing on the great song repertoire from NE Scotland; and Margaret has listened and learned from the wonderful source singers from that airt, like Lizzie Higgins and Daisy Chapman.
This will be a special event, and - as ever - booking is required if you don't want to be disappointed.

Numbers are already looking promising, so please don't leave your booking to the last minute.

And for anyone thinking of coming along but not quite sure what to expect, there is no compulsion to "perform" and the atmosphere is very supportive -- as well as being a bit of a laugh at times, even if the humour is sometimes dark as you might suspect given the subject matter of some of these songs!
