Murder ballads

Posted on Updated on

We started off the new year with a full day course of local (more or less) murder ballads. As always we started with warming up and traditional singing techniques. How does it sound when each and everyone say a given scentence in her dialect? How does it sound when we put melody to it? What are the differencies? Singing and discussions are closely tied together in our work. We taught murder songs of all kinds; short “postcards” and really long medieval ballads. Sixteen singers met up, really nice!! There were people from our choir, young musicians from Baltic Sea Inter Cult and some new singers as well. As always an interesting mix of ages, musical backgrounds and opinions. Just like we like it! We are now preparing for the coming singing workshops this spring, please send us your requests!! What workshop would you like to participate in?
