Sheffield Carol Singing leads to Whiteshill singers?
Here's my short film of the evening: http://stroudcommunity.tv/sheffield-carol-singing-in-whiteshill/
The Sheffield Carols have been described as one of the most remarkable instances of popular traditional singing in the British Isles. They predate modern carols by over a century and are sung with alternative words and verses to those we are hearing today. Come and listen or better still join in. For the occasion Ken at The Star had the award winning Kelham Island, Sheffield Real Ale.
Whiteshill group? There are now hopes for a Whiteshill group of singers – for those interested contact me on 01453 755451 and I can put you in touch with the 14 plus people who are planning to make a group of some sort!
Meanwhile today I was at the Transition Stroud 'Winterfest' where the Albert carollers were again singing - I hope to have some of that on film along with loads of the inspiring projects going on in Stroud.
