11:30 – 12:30 SongS P A C E…

…is A C E! Guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

A class for singers of all ages and abilities to come and find, explore, re-discover and develop their unique voice; through seasonal sing-a-long songs, chants, hymns, hums and perhaps a lullaby or three, at the Weorgoran Pavilion, with songstress Julia who believes everybody can sing!

Julia has been singing since the cradle and welcomes everyone to join in with SongS P A C E. Intended as a tonic, classes begin by connecting with the breath, adding gentle movements designed to get energy flowing. After tuning in with carefully chosen chants, Sol-fa (so good!) is introduced to train the inner ear, refine listening and pitch control. Have fun learning well-known or unfamiliar songs, favourite tunes, old and new, with some of Julia’s own compositions thrown in for good measure. The session ends with relaxation, sometimes with a meditation.

 

14:00-15:00 Lily Dooner

A mellow and beautiful set from young singer-songwriter, Lily Dooner. Lily has always written short stories and poems but after picking up the guitar at age sixteen, her writing shifted onto a new platform. Inspired by artists such as Nick Drake, Suzanne Vega and Laura Marling, Lily began writing a catalogue of raw and honest songs. Five years later Lily has completed her first collection of songs, the ‘Lioness E.P.’ and continues to experiment with her sound.

 

15:30-16:30 Tyler Massey

American-born Tyler Massey is a songwriter with the rare ability to write songs that feel modern and nostalgic at the same time. Inspired by both Americana and Psychedelia, his latest EP “American Nightmare” explores the blurry line between these two seemingly opposite genres throughout. Having logged hundreds of live appearances, he never fails to deliver an emotional live set.

 

17:15-18:00 Lost Cat

Jo Case, aka Lost Cat, grew up amidst the tail end of the Bristol free party scene of the late 2000s. While everyone she knew was making and partying to techno and dubstep, Jo was hunting out obscure 1970’s psychedelic folk albums and weird, fuzzy indie music. Growing up surrounded by electronic music still made its mark on her sound, drawing it away from the traditional guitar folk that inspired her earliest songwriting and making her own distinctive sound.
