Shanty Singers

Thursdays 19.30 - 20.30

11th January - 28th March (11 weeks, £88 or £9 drop in) Come along to this brand new Shanty Singers group at the Conservatoire to learn traditional sea shanties. All abilities are welcome. There is no need to be able to read music, but you should be able to sing in tune and have a good sense of rhythm. Learn from Nicola Harrison, who comes from an ancient sea faring family, and take on the tradition of this fabulous working and storytelling custom from the days of sail. You will also learn the background to the shanties, and the different styles and rhythms depending on the type of work they were sung to on board. Tutor Nicola has run projects and performances with shanty singers from Devon and Cornwall and written shows featuring the sea, the characters and creatures that come from the sea, and the sailors who work on and earn their living from the ocean. She is an incredibly seasoned teacher and singer herself with a background in teaching and performance. Some of her students have become monumentally famous and she has worked with choirs at Oxford University where she is a Lecturer. But don’t be swayed by that! Nicola teaches shanty singing because she loves the rocky, folk tradition of the sailors’ life.
