Award winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan shares the stories of inspirational women who challenged expectations through original song and storytelling. From the woman who dressed as a soldier on the Western Front to the women football players banned by the FA, the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders and the so-called ‘surplus million’ single women.
Through this workshop you will learn original songs from Louise Jordan’s project ‘No Petticoats Here’ as well as the women’s First World War stories that inspired them. You are then invited to perform (should you wish to) as part of the performance. Louise will teach choruses and harmonies for a range of abilities and experiences.
Workshops are open to all ages, genders and abilities. You do not need to read music although you will have the option of using sheet music if you prefer.
