WILDSONG SESSIONS: Singing for Spellbinding Sisters
created and conducted by Carolyn Hillyer
Informal monthly gatherings on Dartmoor where women can sing out their hearts and drum up a storm
with earth songs, ancient chants, spiralling harmonies and fun.
Postbridge Village Hall, Dartmoor, Devon
Wednesdays 7pm to 9.30pm
No booking required / £13 (£7 concession) / cash on the door
Two hours singing followed by cake & tea
All women are welcome, with or without experience, whether you are confident, cautious or curious.
It is an easy joy to sing sacredly with sisters so come just to dip a toe or dive in all the way!
Bring your drum if you have one.
For those who are interested in taking part in our June events, these sessions are working towards participating in a wayfaring pack-pony journey across the ancient ritual landscape of the north moors, as well as presenting songs at a music evening as part of the Dartmoor Society’s Dartmoor Resonance Music Festival midsummer 2018 (see more details below).
Funds from the song sessions ave been supporting the Pachamama/Earth Mother Prayer Walk project.
From March 2018 they will support the Songways of Dartmoor pilgrimage project.
