Songs of the Summer
Castle Douglas based choir, SongWave, known throughout the region for their uplifting and entertaining concerts will be performing in the beautiful surroundings of Dalbeattie Church Hall, Crossmichael Church and Kirkcudbright Parish Hall. Kate Howard, the choir’s new Musical Director said, “The concert will be based on songs of community, friendship, changing seasons and the many cycles of life.” The songs, from around the world will include new songs from Karine Polwart; a gentle rendition of ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’; traditional Ukrainian folk songs; a Shaker song ‘Lay me Low’ with new words by John Tams and ‘Walk this World’ with music by Chris Wood. There will be songs to lift the spirits and songs to shed a tear to and most of all songs that connect us as a global community.
Thanks to generous funding from the Lottery Heritage Fund, the concert will be free, but tickets must be booked in advance.
