Warwick Folk Festival Choir

Would you like to perform at this year’s Warwick Folk Festival?

* NO auditions, NO Military Wives, NO Gareth Malone, NO revolving chairs, NO Simon Cowell !!!!
* No need to be able to read music – all songs taught by ear.
* Be part of an open-access 6-week choir, singing all manner of great songs from around the World
* Perform to your friends and a wonderfully supportive audience at the internationally-renowned Warwick Folk Festival
* Free entry to the Festival Site on the Sunday
* Receive mp3 (music files) of the harmony parts (so you can catch up if you have to miss a week)

Come and join over 50 enthusiastic singers on Monday evenings in Warwick
for a series of sessions leading to a couple of short, informal performances at the Festival on the Sunday in July. Over 6 weeks we will be singing a cracking selection of a cappella harmony folk songs from around the world. The sessions, run by popular local choir leader Bruce Knight, will be fun and lively and satisfy both the beginner and the seasoned a cappella singer.

The Canny Band

The Canny Band

A collaboration born from a love of traditional music and fuelled by student poverty, The Canny Band are an eclectic trad trio based in Glasgow. Sam Mabbett (button accordion) and Michael Biggins (piano) formed the band in 2016 and since then have been crowned finalists of the Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections and supported bands such as Vasen. With the recent addition of Callum Convoy (bodhran), the trio have arranged some new and exciting music for your delights.
