St John’s Church, Church Street, Cleckheaton, BD19 3RN

Performances: Saturday 2nd July 2016

On Saturday 2nd July renowned folk outfit The Demon Barbers will headline Cleckheaton Folk Festival’s Saturday Night Concert and we are looking for local singers to join them.

The Demon Barbers are renowned for their no holds barred approach to their live shows and fuse traditional songs with superbly tight drum & bass and dance that draws from morris, sword, contemporary and hip-hop.

We’re looking for local singers to take part in workshops with vocalist Bryony Griffith from The Demon Barbers to create a repertoire to perform twice at the festival. Firstly at an informal afternoon sharing followed by a performance as part of the official festival concert, which will also feature BBC Folk award-winners The Demon Barbers XL, Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar and acclaimed folk trio Said the Maiden.

 Some experience of singing is preferred but not essential. To take part simply contact
