Lowering the Tone is a new men’s singing group that was borne out of singing workshops aimed at getting men singing together. Although some of our members have been singing regularly, the majority of them haven’t aired their singing voices since they were at school (and that’s quite a long time ago!).
Our men don’t take themselves too seriously and are enjoying exploring the tremendous sound that 20 men can make together. We’ve been working on some shanties to sing at the Faversham Nautical Festival and the Food Festival, but we also sing other songs from other genres too.
We meet for a series of sessions on Saturday mornings at Newnham Village Hall between 10.00 and 12.00, and if you get there from 9.45 there’s a cuppa and a bacon roll to enjoy first!
If this sounds a wee bit tempting, don’t hesitate to get in touch and I’ll let you know when the next sessions are!
Friday 15th September at the Town Quay, Faversham singing shanties for Faversham Food Festival 8pm
Thursday 14th December at The Assembly Rooms, Faversham 7.30pm
