Subject: Huddersfield Wimmin's singing group

I have just arrived in Huddersfield from New Zealand and I'm missing my women's singing group so I'm thinking of starting up something similar here. In NZ we meet once a month for a sing around. Anything goes, the only rule is "no unconstructive criticism". Ability varies from complete beginners to experienced musicians and some people bring instruments, some sing unaccompanied and some sing in groups. We always have a great night and share songs, coffee, vino, chat and our talent. The group has proved a springboard for lots of us to feel more confident singing in the folk clubs. Is there anyone out there in the Huddersfield area who would be interested? Our house could be a venue. PM me if you would like to come along or if you know of a similar group already functioning in the area.

Cheers

F

Women's group eh - sounds very sexist to me I thought we were passed all that, if a man was to start a group in a similar vein I feel there would be problems, but hey good luck

I know of a couple of roughly similar groups in the area: Moorland Singers (women only) and Unity. I don't know that either would be quite what you want, but there are contact details for both at http://www.yorkshire-folk-arts.com/directory/choirs.html#huddersfield. Might be a starting point, anyway.

Try http://www.ryburn3step.org.uk/singing.htm for a supportive mixed singing workshop.

I sing on an irregular basis with a few local women, I'm sure we'd be interested if you did start a session. What area are you based in?

Hi Guest from Slaithwaite, I'm just up the road from you in Milnsbridge. If you PM me your details, I'll give you a buzz. The Ryburn 3 step is a little far away for us since I have a 4 month old baby.

OK I've done what I've been meaning to do for ages and joined you all. Now I can pm a response to Fi

j0hn, When I started singing a couple of years ago I found I got swamped in mixed sessions and found it easier to sing with just women. Now I've found my voice I'm a bit more confident. I think we also use the singing sessions as an excuse to get out for a girlie evening once in a while

Liz, I've not been in Slawit long so you've lost me with the Castle??

My hubby goes out twice a week to play music with men - once for band practice (all men) and once for a session (nearly all men). There are plenty of male voice choirs, barber shop, morris groups etc which are all men.... likewise there are plenty of hideous coffee morning groups for women with small kids. Since I'm not into the coffee morning thing, I'm simply looking for other things to do to get to know people in the area whilst at the same time feeding my interest in singing. The group in NZ worked fantastically well and despite the more macho culture of NZ I never heard any of the ridiculous comments there that this posting seems to have instigated here. Interesting.... any ideas as to why that might be?

Nothing you need worry your pretty little head about. Run along and have a nice time.

Good for you--non carborundum illegitimi. The more people singing, in whatever combinations, the better.

Hi, I'm looking to start singing again since I haven't done any for approx 15 years, rusty doesn't begin to cover it. I'm not much of a folk fan though although I don't mind a bit. Any ideas anyone?

Hi Fi. If you do get it started, perhaps you'd like to come over to my radio programme - Sounds of Folk - to talk about it? We're only just over the hills from you, in the Oldham area.

Allo Rev John from 'Ull. How you doing? A wimmins group in 'uddersfield? I'm sure I remember something around the Marsden area or slowitt. There is the 'uddersfield choral but it's a bit highbrow for a folkie...(ducks, but lives a long way away now)
