Anyone who has experienced the pleasure of singing together and in harmony will enjoy this workshop with its emphasis on traditional English Folk Song arranged by workshop leader Issy Emeney.

About the workshop leader: Issy Emeney is a well known and highly respected figure on the national folk music scene. A top class melodeon player, composer and performer with four albums to her name, her songs have been covered and recorded by other well known folk musicians and are now firmly in the folk tradition.
