 This month I’ve been working on two fantastic theatre projects – Angela El-Zeind’s funny, raw and honest Rebel Boobs and Sun & Sea which is part of LIFT, London’s biennial international festival of theatre.

I’ve also started daytime harmony singing groups in Brighton and Shoreham and am preparing for an UpRoar People’s Ceilidh with Rory McLeod! Click here to join my mailing list and keep up-to-date with all the latest community singing events and opportunities.

Vocal Harmony On the Radio

Each month I present Vox Pop Radio. Sponsored by Hullabaloo Quire Vox Pop is a celebration of vocal harmony and community singing.

This month I’m in the hot seat with Margate based musician and animateur, Jodie Watson. Jodi is involved with Beyond The Page, an innovative programme that blends choral warm ups and singing with ESOL lessons for migrants and asylum seekers. As well as this, I bring you a cornucopia of harmonic delights from a creative broad church, including Hozier, Les Grandes Gueules, Poppy Ajudha, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.

Singing together is a great social and creative leveller, community singing is good for our mind, body and soul;  it supports our respiration, releases endorphins and lowers cortisol, it strengthens bonds and forges new connections and it nurtures our creativity and opens us to rhythm, roots and resonance…singing is our birthright!

Ways you can work with me

I work with community choirs, singing groups, theatre groups and corporations, mainly in the field of a cappella harmony singing, but I also run workshops and courses in group composition, improvisation, singing with cross rhythms and percussion, stagecraft and group movement for simple performance technique.
