Using different input and inspiration is vital to the sessions of folk song lab. Today we experimented with using ‘waulking songs’ as inspiration for singing. ‘Waulking songs’ is narrative singing while waulking the fabric e.g. tweed on the Hebrides. We use input from traditional singing as in this wonderful video.
Starting off a new semester at KMH also means doing new experiments in folk song lab sessions . Always starting with mirror singing, but also include improvising new ballads or waulking songs or something else. It’s great fun.
