Singing Residentials

Sing, socialise, walk and eat with The Unthanks. The Unthanks have been bringing people to the North East for singing residentials for over 10 years. The onus on participation and inclusivity. You do not have to be an experienced singer to attend or enjoy the weekend. For us, it’s all about the simple pleasure of joining in. Expect a good sing, good cheer, good food and drink from locally sourced independent producers, some fresh air and gentle walking, and new friends. Events generally sell out very quickly so if you’re interested in joining us, please sign up to our newsletter for updates.

About the Weekend

Workshops, walking and singarounds take place with Rachel and Becky Unthank, with good food to write home about by Unthanks pianist and musical director, Adrian McNally. From the serious business of passing on tradition to the simple joy of singing, The Unthanks are committed and passionate about teaching, sharing and living folk song.
Running over 3 days, you can expect harmony workshops, opportunities for joyful chorus singing, chances to learn songs that are close to The Unthanks’ hearts and tradition, we will explore and sing out together in the local landscapes, often incorporating a gentle walk that ends with a cosy pub singing session. We’ll also perform to you in an intimate setting – one of our favourite ways to share stories and songs. We look forward to welcoming you.
