THE next weekend singing workshop organised by Angus Folk will be with Karine Polwart on Saturday, May 26 in The Guide Hall, The Roods, Kirriemuir.
Karine draws from folk music’s long tradition while keeping pace with the ceaselessly changing times.
Having won four BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, she is one of Scotland’s most popular folk singers and songwriters.
She also has the purest and most approachable of singing voices, drawing the listener towards her in the same way one might lean towards a late night tale by the fireside.
“For me” says Polwart, “music is one of the most powerful ways of making sense of the world. It’s for celebrating, grieving, sharing, wondering.”
Karine has experience teaching vocal harmony workshops for community groups, youth projects and at music festivals.
She is also an occasional tutor for the Scottish Music course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and on the folk degree course at Newcastle University.
Go along and lend your voice to vibrant vocal harmony arrangements of folk, roots and contemporary songs. All teaching will be by ear. No music theory required. Age 12 years and over.
The workshop runs from 10am to 4.30pm (registration from 9.30am).
Tickets are £18 full price (£14 for members and concessions). The price includes tea/coffee and cake but lunch is not provided.
