Man Engine

Last night was the first rehearsal for the Man Engine Choir - see the website for tour details.
And if my link doesn't work, just type in Man Engine 2018!

We all met at Heartlands, in Pool near Redruth and having registered, about 100 of us packed into the Main Hall where Hilary Coleman started teaching us the songs we will be singing. And what a joyous rehearsal it was! A big room full of singers, all singing their hearts out with Cornish pride.

In a week where two friends of mine are very poorly, it was great to have such a gathering of like minded people and learn new songs. As I do every Thursday, with the Suitcase Singers. And tonight I will be singing at the Folk Evening at Penryn, singing with my small group, The Semi Quavers.

So here's to singing to banish the winter blues. Or any blues, come to think of it....

Happy singing Sue!
It never fails to amaze me, how listening to a group of people singing, can lift a soul almost as much as it lifts the singers!
Would love to go to Ironbridge and see the Man Engine there, but it clashes with something else, so not this year.

Kim - it is wonderful isn't it? Sorry you won't get to see the Man Engine - it's going to be great! X

Read your article in W & H yesterday. Your love for Cornwall clearly shows in it. I found all of the article quite interesting.

Kim - glad you enjoyed it. It's interesting how many people read that magazine!
