300 voices singing to the sea!
June 25, 2012
It was a grand day for students, parents, teachers, artists and us at the Polperro Music and Arts festival last Wednesday. Holiday makers, members of local folk club, parents and those passing by while at the festival heard over 300 students singing the Sea Shanties learnt through the Lost at Sea project that CoastNet is running with funding from HLF and through the Villa Cross Media project (Interreg.
Each school (Marlborough Primary School, Fourlanesend Community Primary School, Duloe CE VA Junior & Infant School and Antony CE VA School) had rehearsed separately so it was really exciting when they all came together, calling out to each other to sing along.
We’d like to thank the local artists who taught us the sea shanties for treating the young singers to some well deserved biscuits after the event.
Photos, videos of the songs, lyrics. More to come!
