Singing Circle

Ben Ben Ji from the Rainbow Family will lead sacred songs from around the world.  He will be playing guitar and teaching the songs. We sing in sacred space as an offering of gratitude for this beautiful, holy life we’re all in together. Sing, drum, clap, dance and join in any way you like. Please bring musical instruments and a blanket or cushion to sit on. You are welcome to share a song or two if you’d like to.

Celtic Breton Music & Dances

The dances of Brittany and France can be entrancing, communal, romantic and infectious! Brittany is full of Druidic lore, woodland and lake magic, megalithic monuments and rich folk traditions. Community dances are still regular events, where old and young all turn up to move together to the sound of the pipes and song. In old times of earthen floors, when a new family’s house was completed, folks would gather together and make special dances inside to firm the floor and fill the abode with music, song and celebration. The dances are wide and varied, grounded in lyric and rhythm of a particular Celtic flavour.
