The 2020 Festival was a fantastic success!
There were workshops for all ages and abilities. Durga Ramakrishnan, south Indian vocalist, shared her skills. We also learned beautiful 16th-century Corsican harmonies; Georgian, Welsh and Irish traditional folk; and songs made using looping technology.
In the Singing Supper, we ate food from Syria, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Morocco all cooked by local chefs and served by SPAN Volunteers.
The Saturday night concert opened with a taste of Indian carnatic singing from Durga Ramakrishnan. Semi Toned, an a cappella group from Exeter University mixed barbershop with bass and beatboxing. Irish duo Ye Vagabonds played a beautifully paced set, mixing tales of death and unrequited love with harmonic, foot-tapping folk.
On Sunday Côr Pawb, Everyone’s Choir, put on a warm and wonderful concert, the result of three community choir days held with four different choir leaders at the beginning of the year.
The next Narberth A Cappella Voice Festival will be in 2022.
