Details

Fiona Evans has spent much of her professional career travelling all around the world singing with various small consorts and ensembles like The Sixteen, and Tallis Scholars, and singing on movie soundtracks including Da Vinci Code, Die Another Day and Chicken Run.

More recently, Fiona’s attention has been turned to running community choirs and leading workshops throughout the country.

Fiona runs Hay Community Choir, Hay Shantymen, two choirs in Devon and Decibelles as well as running music and arts workshops at their home just outside Hay on Wye.

Today’s workshop will focus on folk song and the interrelationship between song and nature. Walking through the woods we will hear and sing folk songs, listen to the sounds within the wood and create our own songs giving the trees a chance to sing their own song through composition and touch. This experimental workshop will be fun and an exciting new approach to how we connect with nature.

Notes

We will always try to make visits for those with disabilities as comfortable as possible, please ask a volunteer if you need extra help or comfort and we will do what we can. This is a working farm so the ground is not particularly even. There is some access through the nature trail for those with mobility problems but it will not cater for all needs as there is grass, uneven ground etc.
