Stars, stripes and maple leaves — songs from across the pond

Fri 26 May 2017 @ 17:00 - Sun 28 May 2017 @ 14:00


A weekend of luxury learning songs from across North America. Come and celebrate amazing singer-songwriters from both Canada and the USA.

NOT SUITABLE FOR COMPLETE BEGINNERS — you will need some experience of harmony singing to get the most out of the weekend.

From £205 per person. Book online here: chrisrowbury.com

Peterborough West Holiday Inn is set in pretty landscaped gardens, opposite Ferry Meadows Country Park, just 2.5 miles from the city centre and close to the A1.

All bedrooms are twin or double en suite and all furnished to a very high standard. The weekend includes all meals, tuition and tea/ coffee breaks. As well as the many facilities offered by the hotel, just across the road are plenty of scenic and pleasant walks by the Nene river and the lakes of Ferry Meadows Country Park.

We will learn songs by Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon (Simon & Garfunkel), Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys) and Carole King (a song made famous by James Taylor). A glorious celebration of amazing song-writing talent from both Canada and the USA. There will also be opportunities to explore the local area and relax. Guests will also have free use of the hotel leisure facilities: swimming pool, sauna and steam room.

All songs have been chosen carefully and arranged especially for voices only in 3- and 4-part harmony.

Everything will be taught by ear (no need to read music!).
