Come and try Gaelic singing

12:00p.m. to 2:00p.m.
Albany Centre
44 Ashley St,
Glasgow GB

Have you always wanted to try Gaelic singing? Do you already know a few songs but would like to expand your repertoire? Maybe you just love singing and sharing songs in a group. It's easy to learn Gaelic songs even if you don't know the language. No experience necessary.

Bring one of the following:
1 hour help with tending my vegetable beds at Woodlands community garden
Advice or help with vocal exercises
Contacts of musicians or singers who might like to collaborate
Dried (or fresh!) nettles, cleaver, wild garlic or other edible/medicinal herbs or weeds!
Homegrown veggies, fruit or herbs, or organic from the shops
Teach me a song in a foreign language!
Teach me to follow a knitting pattern

About the teacher, Bethany Halcrow

I learned my first Gaelic song from Julie Fowlis at the Feis Rois in 2004. Since then I have gone to every Gaelic song workshop that I could in Edinburgh, Glasgow and further afield, plus learned from friends and whoever else I've met along the way. I love the purity of Gaelic singing, the sense of history and culture in the songs, and I love singing together with others, sharing songs, stories and tunes. I have performed and recorded with various musicians over the years, and I have completed two years music study at Glasgow University and Stevenson College in Edinburgh. I look forward to singing and teaching Gaelic song with the Trade School! See you there.
