Singing is one thing, but singing together is something else. Powerful and uplifting, group singing creates deep human connections and benefits our wellbeing. And it’s fun.

Vocal leader James Sills believes that group singing is a joyful expression of our humanity and has the power to change lives. His new book, Do Sing: Reclaim your voice. Find Your singing Tribe., will help unlock your voice and reawaken a love of singing.

Come and hear what James has to say, and then join us in some singing of our own!  No sheet music, no preparation required, just the joy of singing together (and with a bar, if you fancy a drink).

 

James Sills is a musician and vocal leader with a passion for bringing people together to sing. He runs weekly open-access choirs and delivers workshops across the UK, with an emphasis on fun and inclusivity. Over the last decade he has led thousands of people in song in festivals, workplaces, schools, cathedrals and pubs. In his local town of Wrexham, James runs the One Love Choir which is the first homeless choir in Wales. It supports those who have experienced homelessness, addiction and mental health issues. He runs the festival choir at The Good Life Experience, and is a member of the all-male a capella troupe The Spooky Men’s Chorale, with whom he has performed at festivals around the world. James is also part of the Rough Island Band, a contemporary folk quartet based in the Isles of Scilly. He lives in the hills of North Wales with his young family and vinyl collection.
