Upcoming workshops

Sorrel Wilde and Renee Berkhout invite you to come learn, sing and celebrate traditional folk wassail songs. Coming together at the coldest time of the year to learn traditional and contemporary arrangements of Wassail songs in gorgeous warming harmony.

Wassailing is an ancient West country tradition to welcome in a new apple growing year and encourage a good cider harvest. The songs from this tradition are rousing and similar in sound to folk carols.  

This workshop is open to everyone, all abilities, all voice types, all humans, preferably not other creatues. All songs will be taught by ear and word sheets will be available. If you have access needs or just singing anxiety please get in touch. 

There will be also be an opportunity to perform the songs at Wild Acre's Wassail on Sunday 18th February for those who would like to! Wild acres is a lovely community smallholding half way between Bristol and Stroud with a stream, an ancient untouched woodland, and an orchard in its third growing year.


The site is based in Breadstone, Berkeley GL13 9HF, accessible about 20 minutes to both workshops. Car shares are encouraged and can be planned during the workshops. 

At the wassail there will be hot soup on sale and all are welcome.

Welcome, get comfortable, and sing yourself in. 

Hello, I'm so glad you're here, it means you want to sing, and I really love meeting people who want to sing. I am a song carrier, a voice leader and a nature bather, preferably all at once. 

On this website, which is not updated nearly as much as it should be, you'll find a few different ways to engage in singing work with me. Maybe you need a choir to sing weekly and keep learning, maybe you have need of a song bringer for an event, maybe you'd just like to explore where your voice is at. 

Wherever you are in your singing journey, I'd love to be on that journey with you. I'm fanatical about working with people and working with voice.
