Penrith Improv Choir songwriting session Nov 2017

Tonight there was a small group of 4 – we had been working on vocal dexterity last week and this week I had just done a skill swap with Catherine Ashcroft who is a lovely whistle player so I thought I would use the whistle and the way it sounds on a jig with some rolls and cuts and move that onto the voice. We then took a 14C secular carol and sang it to the jig then Ruth improvised a new tune. We then moved that into different time signatures and worked out a chord structure. We ended up going over time we got so engrossed. I will put the tune up in vocal union – it is beautiful – thanks Ruth!
