A workshop for adults led by Fiona Dobie.
Beautiful harmony songs are taught by ear, with hot tips on how to sing well. This is fun and enlightening for all singers, experienced and beginners.
No previous experience is necessary, so if you've always wanted to explore your voice (and everyone has one!), do come along and try this out.
The £10 participation fee includes tea and biscuits in the break.
