Singing - with attitude!
Stephen Taberner workshop and gig Wednesday 19th September
THE SINGING CURE
Spookmeister Stephen Taberner returns to Bristol to present a one-off journey into the various dimensions of musical ecstacy. The workshop may include body and vocal percussion tidbits, a choice Polynesian song, how to use blending to make a rabble into a luminous and angelic choir, a multi-part pygmy extravaganza, secret ditties from the Spooky Men's Chorale (including tips on how to sob like a man), and maybe something infernally funky as well.
Stephen has an absurdly eclectic musical pedigree (check out his biography), and promises to ransack every musical area to give you a zingling tingling thingly feeling which will linger long after the workshop has finished, and very probably an entirely irrational good regard for all humanity as well.
In the evening he will take to the stage in the intimate Lansdown pub in Clifton with a stand-in for his beloved double bass 'Beatrice' to titillate your ears with a sly array of quirky, funky and melancholic songs exploring, amongst other things, teenage angst, the existential life of goldfish, and the secret life of peaches.
He'll be supported byThe Croutons one of the freshest acappella trios on the circuit.
