I have been gathering people together to sing in Bristol for the last 7 years. My singing sessions are dynamic and uplifting with no pressure to rehearse towards performances. They are accessible and inclusive and open to experienced and non-experienced singers alike.
I currently run a choir called The Park Songbirds from the bowling club in my local park in East Bristol. We meet every Thurs eve and sing traditional/folk songs from around the world in harmony together, for the pure joy of it!
This term's dates are: 21st Sept - 20th Oct
Next term's dates are: 2nd Nov - 14th Dec
I also run monthly pop-up workshops .in Bristol, with no need to book - drop-ins welcome.
All my workshops require no experience, all songs are taught by ear and everyone is welcome.
I advertise for all my sessions on my social media feeds and via my mailing list. If you wish to find out more please do get in touch!
In 2017 I co-wrote Baba's Song with my theatre company In Our Hands. My writing accidentally burst out of me, and that was it - no going back!
In 2018 I was awarded a funded place on an Arvon retreat led by poet Hollie McNish (Nobody Told Me, Slug) and Malachy Tallack (60 Degrees North) - this was a huge inspiration and I have been writing poetry and prose ever since.
In 2020 my poem 'Sung Through Me' was published in the anthology 'Songs of Love and Strength' by the Mum Poem Press, which is available to buy here.
- This summer I have been working as Associate Choir Leader on the National Theatre's Public Acts' production of the Odyssey: Episode 5. It has been really wonderful to be working on such an important, exciting and exhilarating event. More details here https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/productions/the-odyssey/

- In September I will begin leading Pill Community Choir - a well-established communtiy choir that has been running for 5 years. I am thrilled to be embarking on a new phase of their musical journey with them and can't wait to share and sing some of my eclectic repetoire together.
