About this event

SCCR A DISCOVERY OF VOICE (WORKSHOP): Learn a Scottish song and sing in harmony!


Learn a Scottish song with Rachel and then join in the fun by singing in harmony and in a round with friends and family.


Rachel Newton is a singer and harpist who draws on poems and ballads that are hundreds of years old, working them into her contemporary compositional style to create a rich sound that is ambitious, original and unique. Rachel works across a range of performance platforms including theatre and storytelling. A skilled collaborator, Rachel is a founder member of The Shee, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award 2017 Best Group The Furrow Collective and is a part of the Lost Words: Spell Songs. She has recently launched the new duo project Heal & Harrow with long time friend and colleague Lauren MacColl.


The aim behind ‘A Discovery of Voice’ is to create a FREE interactive series of events incorporating a discovery of voice and emotions through music that focuses on promoting understandings of mental health, emotions, relationships, communication and nurturing a more confident society through expressions such as music and music therapy.

Using music as a platform to de-exceptionalise our understandings of ‘conflict’ by using an everyday perspective to help boost confidence in individuals and help them hear and better understand their own voice, which in turn can deescalate conflict and improve relationships. The events will help promote an understanding of our emotions and way of coping, managing and communicating them to those around us.

Join our FREE online opening event 'Symphony of Stories' on 17th June 18:00-20:00 and our closing concert on the 19th June 18:00-19:30. These events can be booked on the SCCR Events page.

This event will be delivered on the online platform Zoom. If you book on to the event you will be sent the details via email on how to join nearer the time to the event when bookings have closed.

Please note Zoom offers video capability so you can join with your webcam on, but this is entirely up to you and this option can be turned off. However we would love to see your faces and feel it is a more interactive experience with videos on.

We hope to see you online soon!
