Kathleen’s Wedding

Kathleen has asked us to sing at her wedding which is on Sunday 15 September at 3pm at St Luke’s Church in Brierfield. Please put it in your diary – I am sure it will be lovely!
The choice of 3 songs was taken by us as a group last week (and includes 2 that we already know very well). However this list remains top secret of course! All will be revealed this week – please come if you can!
We will then be on holiday for 2 weeks. See dates above.

Choir is meeting as usual tomorrow

There will be 2 breaks coming up in June and July.
The dates for this are below, but the good news is that there will be 3 singing sessions in July and August that we can join in with – please see the attached poster.
18 June  – choir is on as usual
25 June – choir is off
2 July – choir is off
9 July – choir is on as usual
16 July – choir is on as usual. 
23 July to 27 August – choir is off

Tuesday 4th June


Looking forward to singing some lovely English folk songs with everyone tonight. The Ballad of Grace Darling has been a firm favourite (and ear worm!) and we will also have another go at The Oak and the Ash. Here is a reminder of that song on video. I think we can do it as well as this! And from all the versions of the song I have heard, you definitely don’t have to be a north country lass to sing this song!! But we have the added benefit of being able to say whenever we go down South  – how good it is to be back in the North!

Update for Mid May 2019

Choir is ON this coming week (21 May), and you may be sad to hear that we are moving on from bees!!
This coming Saturday is bee day though, so please meet at Padiham Road Methodist Church, in Burnley, for 10.50 and here is the set list:
1. Buzz Away – 2 verses
2. Bee Boys Song – all 3 verses
3. Inversnaid – round sung 3 times and with part 1 repeating the last line
4. Janet’s solo – you just sing “buzz buzz” on the 5 choruses (it will be obvious)
5.English Country Garden – 3 verses. Please practise the words.
6. Buzz Away again – to end on a strong song about how the bees are going to “buzz off” if we don’t start treating them properly!

To hear any songs again you can look on the website and sing along.

Bee Day and Bee songs

If you are planning to come on Saturday 18th, please try to get along to choir this Tuesday (14th). If not, the arrangements are that we are meeting at Padiham Road Methodist Church on Brassey Street at 10.50 a.m..

For everyone – if you have a quiet few minutes, – the songs are here then click on Buzzin Bee Day if you want to be practising!

Please note – Janet may have to cancel the session on 21 May owing to a family funeral. Please keep your eyes on the website, Facebook or emails for news.
