Last September I set myself the challenge of writing a blog post each day for the whole month about something to do with baking bread for #SourdoughSeptember.
It was hard work but I really enjoyed it and so I’ve decided to do something similar this year. However, having more or less exhausted my baking knowledge last year I am going to do something different this year and try and post a recording of a Folk Song each day!
I’ve set myself a few arbitrary rules which I will try and stick to (or at least say when I don’t manage to stick to them!):
1 – The song must be recorded unaccompanied
2 – The song must be recorded in one take (although it doesn’t have to be the first take!)
3 – The song must be sung entirely from memory. No lyrics sheets allowed!)
I’ve had a lot of fun over the last couple of months trying to learn as many as I can and I’m looking forward to seeing how this goes.
I’ve put together a little ‘sample’ recording to give you a flavour of some of what is coming up over the next few weeks – enjoy!
