What to expect?
A self-cater long weekend concentrating on singing together and solo. Suitable for all levels from beginners to experts. Starts Thursday evening and ends Sunday afternoon. Singers camp is for everyone interested in vocal music and all that it encompasses. This long weekend provides an encouraging environment that brings people together to enjoy using their voices as a group or in solo performances. The generous, non-judgmental spirit at Singers camp means that everyone who wants to participate can join in, regardless of their level of confidence or experience.
Depending who comes, this could include anything from a beginners’ workshop for people who’ve never performed in the song circle through to a group master-class for solo singers. There will of course be some mass harmony workshops (simple and complicated) and plenty of singarounds as well. And for those that don’t sing, but enjoy listening, or only joining in with a well-known chorus, there is still a place for you here.
Lots more information about what happens at a Folk Camp can be found in the Camper’s Guide. (link coming soon)
Miserden is a small village surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside. Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stroud are all nearby but the village is so attractive you may want to just sit in the field and admire the view. The village pub is very welcoming and people often enjoy a session combined with a pub lunch. Miserden is set in beautiful wooded hills and valleys between Stroud and Cheltenham, Miserden is in a walker’s paradise. Historic Cheltenham is just 9 miles away and Cirencester and the Cotswold Water Parks are well worth a visit. Ask the locals the history of Whiteway. Miserden village is part of the well known Wills Estate.
