Singing together brings joy, calming the nervous system, releasing oxytocin and generating feelings of trust and empathy. In this workshop participants will enjoy the sensations of sharing their voices together as Saro teaches work songs, hymns, rounds, hollers and more from a variety of American and North Atlantic Island traditions. Get ready to learn everything from sea shanties and Shaker songs to Appalachian hymns and Scottish lullabies. Saro will provide the historical background and context for each song, and leave a little time for participants to lead songs too.
