5th September – Welcome back!

6 Sep

What a joy to be back singing again with all the lovely Otley A Cappella crew? I have missed our Thursday singing sessions and was really happy to be back and getting our facial muscles around a new song!

The song we will be looking at over the next few weeks is one of my all time favourite songs… i think the words are really powerful, the melody and the harmonies evocative. I know U2 (especially Bono) gets a lot of bad press but I have always thought they are a great band who write songs that have meaning with  melodies that really capture you which, in my opinion, are the foundations for a timeless song.

Anyway – enough of this Friday morning looking out of the window at constant rain ramblings! ON WITH THE SHOW!




Here is the score so you can follow the music – remember – you don’t have to be able to read music to join in with us. Just following the music gives you a sense of rise and fall in the melody and how the words work rhythmically.

OAC I Still Haven’t Found

and here are the MP3s for you to listen to (WARNING! it is a rough demo so there are a few weird bits but you will get the general idea!)






I mentioned last night that Me and Richard will be running a Folk Harmony Singing workshop at The Woolpack as part of Otley Folk Festival on Sunday 22nd September 2pm-4pm

I would love Otley A Cappella to perform  One Day Like This and Islands in the Stream to open the session. If you would like to take part that would be fantastic. You don’t have to stay for the whole 2 hours (we will be looking at Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ In the Wind) but it would be great to see you.

Also keep SUNDAY 22ND DECEMBER free for our Christmas Party + Gig at Korks! We’ll get together with the Ukulele gang again and have a reet good knees up!

So that’s all for now… I will look forward to seeing you again very soon

    Rough demo or not, it’s beautiful!
