Karine is a magnificent musician and teacher. We start our season on a high.

Singing for the Uncertain is a good introduction to Stones Barn, even if you have been told you can't sing. Don't believe them! This is a great opportunity to overturn all those old ideas, and begin and enjoy an involvement in music.

A chance to explore your performance with Bellowhead and Steeleye founders!

Each year we have a four day Performance weekend, where we come together and work for three days to put on a concert at the local hall, this year on the Sunday afternoon. We are delighted to welcome John Spiers, melodian player, Bellowhead founder and general all round good fellow, to help us pull the weekend together. Instrumentalists welcome, as well as singers!





Stepping Stones Festival at Kirklinton Hall

June 12 -13

The 2015 festival will again feature concerts of top quality live music (not just Folk music as you will already have discovered in 2014!) in this uniquely friendly and intimate setting of Kirklinton Hall and Gardens.

With The Hefted (Maddy And Friends), Rura, Blackbeards Tea Party, Mountain Firework Company, Hannah James and Tuulikki Bartosik, The Furrow Collective, Jessie May Smart & Co, Folk Nations, The Mischa McPherson Trio, Michael Chapman. Tickets and more information available from www.steppingstonesfestival.co.uk





Poetry with Don Paterson -  £190  Book Now

June 26 - 28

We will spend the weekend looking at some wonderful poems that have somehow escaped the anthologies. He asks that everyone bring a great poem that the suspect no one else will have read.




Vocal Technique with Rose Kemp & Maddy Prior -  £270  Book Now

September 3 - 6

For confident singers wishing to improve.

Maddy's daughter Rose Kemp is studying a degree in Speech and Language Science, and has applied herself to extreme singing for some years. I have embarked on a 3 year Complete Vocal Technique course in Denmark, which is a system for looking at the voice technically, across all genres. We are coming together to teach a course on vocal technique for more experienced singers. Fun but focussed.




Early Music Songs with Giles Lewin & Vivien Ellis - £210  Book Now

September 18 - 20

Giles (Carnival Band, Maddy Hannah & Giles) and Vivien are delightful people who will guide you through glees, catches and Medieval songs.




Leave Autumn Singing with Corrina Hewat - £210  Book Now

October 2 - 4

From the same musical arena as Karine and as impressive a tutor!



    
Making Songs with Rick Kemp - £210  Book Now

October 9 - 11

A popular weekend for songwriters, a really productive course.




Lots Of Lovely Songs with Abbie Lathe & Maddy Prior -  £210  Book Now

October 16 - 18

If you just want to sing Lots of Lovely Songs and have a fun weekend, with Abbie Lathe and myself, this is for you. Abbie Lathe was one of our first tutors at Stones Barn, and those who know her will concur that she is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher. She has performed on several CDs with Maddy...Bib And Tuck...Under The Covers...Stones Barn Volume One...and has also made CDs of her own. This should be a magnificent weekend.




Winter Weekend Workshop with Lady Maisery - £210  Book Now

Those lovely girls with their pristine music!
