Folkworks: Singing Workshop with Fay Hield



Join Fay Hield for a workshop learning and singing songs from the Modern Fairies project. Suitable for singers of all levels including beginners. Modern Fairies is a unique collaboration between leading songwriters, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers & researchers to develop exciting new work, presenting fresh perspectives on what folklore means to us in the modern world.

Fay makes new music from archival sources, weaving the old into new words and sounds that resonate with the people and places she encounters.She has toured and recorded with various BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning projects, including curating The Full English Band and her own group, The Hurricane Party. Her research at The University of Sheffield looks at the English folk scene to discover how it builds a sense of community, how artists play with traditional materials and how audiences receive them.
