On Friday 8th October CICCIC has the pleasure of hosting a day full of song, poetry, music, and percussion with ‘The Becoming Tour’. A day of amazing shanties and sea songs to delight those who love singing and listening to the soundscape of stories that have honoured our past and future as an island nation.
There will be a concert later that evening but, in the afternoon, local singers and choirs are invited to attend a workshop in the afternoon. You’ll learn techniques and shanty songs and get free entry to join in with the evening performance (evening event link).
The workshop is led by Nicola Harrison vocal coach; plus shantymen Missin’ Tackle; and choir leader Andy Williamson of Ashburton. Accompanied by Pete Watson on accordion and Jo May on drums. You’ll practice the songs, words, style of singing and then work on the 4 choruses with the shanty singers to get the nautical vim and verve required!
