I offer a number of talks to U3A, WEA and similar groups. All of the following can be adapted to form anything from a short talk of an hour or so up to a full day course.
Voices from the past - folk songs as historical sources
Peasants and Queens, Gipsies and Female Tars - the lives of women depicted in folk songs
Tennyson and Music
Claribel - the life and music of Charlotte Alington Pye
Holly and Ivy, Boars' Heads and Grete Pies - a history of carols
The Great Folk Song Collectors
Lincolnshire Folk Song
Nature in Song
Music in the Luttrell Psalter
Tales of Lincolnshire
I also present an hour's talk called The Voice Works on the mechanism and care of the voice, which is principally aimed at helping people to take care of their speaking and singing voices.
