Delighted to be encouraged to make this a regular monthly event.
These events are all about freeing your voice and improvisation.
The facilitators will sometimes create songs in the moment with parts.
Special Instruction 1: You can change your part as much as you like, sing a harmony go off at a tangent.
Special Instruction 2 : You can move around the circle freely. Join another part and sing that, try them all out.

Just noticed this wonderful young afrobeat band at Ronnie Scott’s May 8th
Now how can I manage to get there? Take some unpaid leave maybe. The band is focused around 3 young Nigerian women who comprise a stonking horn section in a band designed to get you dancing.
Get in touch if you are interested in making the trek up there too.
Sorry Tiverton but the band were coming from across the South West and we are all snowed in! Hopefully book a new date soon.
Managed to get Ali around my Piano at my mum’s house last night. Just wanted to get a quick demo done. Visuals leave a little to be desired as the sun was going down. Only had time for two takes and the second one did the trick. Even then I fade out the ending because our joint cadenza felt a little shaky. Anyway negative nonsense aside it was nice to play on an acoustic piano for a change and I think it came out OK.
We now have to work on tightening it all up. Maybe even drop it a tone or two.
