Our very own Steve Gardham is taking part in a singing weekend on the edge of the Peak District this summer, which will see him join a number of other leading traditional singers in a series of workshops, talks and performances.

Soundpost’s Wanton Seed Singing Weekend will celebrate the songs brought together by the reissue of the classic folk song books Marrowbones and The Wanton Seed and the brand new omnibus edition, Southern Harvest, which includes both The Foggy Dew and The Constant Lovers.

With lots of opportunities for harmony singing and exploring these songs, this is a chance to enjoy singing your heart out in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and delving into a superb wealth of lyrics and melodies.

Gain insights into how to bring songs to life from the page, thinking about the themes and connections, develop your instrumental accompaniments and much more. There will be a wide choice of practical workshops, singing sessions, talks, performances and one to ones led by the artists in what promises to be a memorable weekend.
