A weekend residential workshop run by Roger Jackson, (Community Singing Director, album-producer for The Rye Sisters) and Rye Sister Ishani Siriwardena.
Learn how to make those distinctive American folk and bluegrass harmonies by singing the songs.
Get away from it all and join us for a weekend of singing in the Swiss mountain countryside this April.
Simple living, amazing views, and great music in the company of an international group of like-minded people.
This April 2023 Roger Jackson is running a weekend of singing in a classic 1930's Swiss mountain chalet in Adelboden in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland.
Limited to just 25 people, there will be learning sessions morning and afternoon with the evening free for trying out what you’ve learned or socialising as you enjoy the alpine ambience. This is a fun event and of interest to anyone who fancies singing.
Whether you're in a band, a choir regular or more of a shower soloist, this perfect for you and, because it's folk, everything is taught by ear, so there's no need to read music. Roger is joined this time by Ishani Siriwardena of The Rye Sisters. More experienced singers will find new songs and arrangements to stretch them, while if you're new to harmony singing, you'll learn how to approach finding and holding a part.
£295 (single room, includes all tuition, accommodation and food); £255 - same but twin room; £205 same but shared room (ie 3 plus people)
