Shirley’s love, knowledge & understanding of English traditional song are second to none. A singer of great authority, she is also an illuminating writer on traditional music. Ian Kearey is her musical director & accompanist; he produced her award-winning Lodestar album & its follow-up, due for release this year.
The workshop is for singers & musicians. Participants are invited to bring an English traditional song for Shirley to give her unique guidance on interpretation & performance. Ian will offer thoughts & techniques for developing sympathetic accompaniments.
