Do you fancy singing some Scottish songs?
Then join us for a fortnightly series of fun and music at Tullynessle and Forbes Hall led by traditional singer and storyteller Grace Banks.
The sessions which will be relaxed, friendly and fun are open to all abilities, male and female, aged 14 plus, who would like to join Grace to sing a mix of traditional ballads and Scottish folk music old and new.
Grace lives in Aberdeen and is a teacher of song at SCAT (Scottish Culture and Tradition, in Aberdeen) she also teaches outdoor education. She is co-author of two books with Sheena Blackhall… “Aberdeenshire Folk Tales” and “Urban Legends”. Grace has a huge repertoire of songs and stories of the North East including many that she learnt from the late Stanley Robertson.
The sessions will run fortnightly on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm (alternating with film club nights) starting on Thursday 3rd September and will run through until the end of March.
The introductory session on 3rd will cost £5 and then it will cost £8 per 2 hour session thereafter or … sign up for the series of 14 for only £80!
This is a fantastic opportunity to develop an appreciation of the music and traditions of North East Scotland with one of the most knowledgeable and approachable teachers we could have.
