comeSing 1 600x600 - Come Sing

It’s all to easy to get drawn into reviewing solo artists and bands to the exclusion of performances that capture precisely what amaSing is really all about. At the heart of this festival is an opportunity to co-operate, collaborate and encourage the community to engage with the festival and to perform. One such opportunity was the comeSing event.

comeSing 3 600x404 - Come Sing

comeSing 5 600x399 - Come Sing

comeSing 7 600x399 - Come Sing

I was impressed by the diversity in age and ability that took to the stage and gave it their all – and for the record, clearly had a great time. It is a cautionary commentary on the lack of such activity and a timely reminder and illustration of the power of community singing. More please.

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time. Although I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, as regards reviewing I guess I cut my teeth in the vibrant fanzine scene of the 80’s. Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
