Event description
No need to read music, like each week at choir Janet Russell will get us all singing quickly in 4 part harmony about issues we care about.

About this event

We are running FREE workshops to swell our ranks with some new members - get a feel for being at one of our weekly choir meets.

We are a mixed, non-auditioned choir from Burnley who meet weekly to sing in 4 part harmony – we don’t do solos and you don’t need to be able to read music to sing with us. All the songs are taught by ear; you just need to want to sing with other people!

Workshop Leader - Janet Russell

Singer, vocal workshop leader, arranger.

With a background in performance starting back in the early 80’s Janet brings a wealth of experience to her work with groups and choirs and she is recognised as an accomplished vocal harmony workshop leader. Janet worked as musical director for Mikron Theatre for ten years and is a member of the Natural Voice Practitioners’ Network.

Janet leads three community choirs, in Burnley, Silsden and Settle and continues to perform and to facilitate voice and harmony workshops.

Janet first made a name for herself on the folk circuit in the ‘80’s as a young singer songwriter writing with hard-edged humour about issues affecting women and her experience since covers work in the UK, Europe, and the USA. Her “Secretary’s Song” was the most requested song on “Folk on 2” in 1987/8.

"Singer-guitarist Janet Russell confirmed that she’s one of the Scottish folk scene’s forgotten treasures’ …….. this return to her formative stamping ground was great fun and I’d go so far as to say life enriching, a tonic that bears repeating often.” Rob Adams, The Glasgow Herald.
