Glasgow City Halls
Sunday 19th January 2014
In this workshop, Christina Stewart will explore some of the charming, but often overlooked gems of Scotland's song tradition, with sleep songs in Scots, English and Gaelic. This workshop is for anyone looking to expand their repertoire of sleepy time songs and no experience of Gaelic necessary. This workshop is a real treat.
12.30pm: Singin' on Yer Mammy's Knee
Come prepared to bounce your bairn on your knee in Christina Stewart's dandling songs workshop. Join in with the actions in this interactive workshop for wee toots and their carers using traditional songs with plenty of opportunity for fun and cuddles. Babies and small children are not absolutely essential but they are very welcome at no cost.
2.30pm: Songs in Stories
Christina Stewart will show her students how the parallel oral traditions of song and story support each other. You will learn songs from Scottish tradition with tales of drama, murder, mystery and derring-do. This workshop is for singers and story lovers, or people who would like to try this traditional art form. Expand your repertoire of dark and dramatic songs to sing by the fireside.
