Busking Byrd

Fancy jamming some Renaissance motets fuelled by a pint or two in a pub back room?

Well, you have the opportunity on Tuesday, the 5th of July at Sheffield’s first real ale pub, The Fat Cat at Kelham Island!

It comes courtesy of Polyphony Down the Pub, a London-based come-and-sing organisation that was featured on BBC Radio 3’s Meet My Choir last Christmas – if you want hear it: https://soundcloud.com/user-723076806/pdtp-meet-my-choir

“We’ve since had a lot of requests to try out a session in other parts of the country and our very first non-London session will The Fat Cat pub in Sheffield,” says PDtP founder Kevin O’Neill.

“It’s free to take part – though people should bring their drinking money! and we welcome anyone who feels they can sight-sing their way through 16th century repertoire. We also have a couple of spaces for non-singers too.

“The emphasis is very much on a fun night of singing. Our motto is ‘no rehearsing, no performing, just singing!’
