Trad Academy Shanty Choir News
The Sea Shanty Choir has another busy year ahead and we’re all really excited about it. We’re thrilled to have been invited to the Baltic Shanty Festival in Finland, which will be a wonderful opportunity to share songs and experiences with other shanty enthusiasts.
Big thanks to those who came along to our disco ceilidh fundraiser last month, we’re well on our way to getting everyone in the choir across the sea to the festival. We’re also really excited to be working with James Burke-Dunsmore on a retelling of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner which will be performed at Wilton’s Music Hall in July. Watch this space for more details!
The choir is working hard on preparing for performances which means there aren’t any open sessions for new members planned right now but if you want to know when the next one is sign up to the mailing list (except you probably already have because you’re reading this already).
Big thank you to Pete, Ellie, Anna, Kate, Duncan, Emma and everyone else who gives so much of their time to helping keep the choir going and organising the trip to Finland! It’s going to be really great!
Check the dates
Right, that’s it for me for now. I’ve played it dangerous this time by putting lots of dates into the text in this e-mail so apologies if I’ve got any of them wrong but hopefully this time I got the subject line right.
As usual check the website for the definitive dates of things and I’ve copied and pasted stuff from there below. Both the flatfooting and Scandi course are having a couple of weeks break for Easter so make sure you check your dates!
See you all real soon I hope!
