Catering for both new and experienced singers, the North Devon Folk Choir have been learning and performing folk songs together since 2012.
North Devon Folk Choir has performed at a huge variety of local venues in Barnstaple and other North Devon towns. The choir toured with the show ‘Trade Roots’, exploring North Devon’s links with the rest of the world. Many singers joined the Landkey Carols project. Unusual spaces have always been popular with the group, busking on Apple Day in the South Molton pannier market, or singing a local traditional Harvest Song in a stubble field!
Each session starts with preparation for the body, breath and voice. You’ll learn to control your breath, extend your vocal range and develop your singing technique. You’ll learn short songs as well as exciting harmonic arrangements which we develop week on week. You’ll learn songs by ear but lyric sheets and musical scores are available. We have a short break during the session where you can have a cup of tea and chat with fellow members. Choir members are invited to perform with the group at their earliest opportunity, but there is never any obligation to take part in public events.
