WATCH OUR FIRST SONGHAVEN AT HOME CONCERT:
filmed at LUMEN, BLOOMSBURY on Saturday 14th March 2020
Our first Concert film is an Irish themed programme featuring soprano Eleanor Garside, tenor Laurence Kilsby and pianist Juliane Gallant (pictured above). It was a truly special concert to witness and I hope that it will bring some joy to you, wherever you are watching from!

PREPARATION TO WATCH A SONGHAVEN CONCERT ONLINE
To ensure maximum enjoyment, we would recommend you have:
a good wifi connection;
Good quality speakers (or decent headphones if using a tablet);
a comfortable seat and a cuppa!
If you're not comfortable with technology, please do ask someone who is to help set the film up for you - hopefully it can be something you can enjoy together with family members / loved ones.
For any carers, or staff at care homes - please feel free to screen our films to those in your care, as often as you like.
ABOUT SONGHAVEN AT HOME
Our online concerts will showcase footage from the past few years of live Songhaven concerts. Each film will showcase (at least) three classically-trained professional artists, performing a 40 minute programme of varied repertoire, finishing with an audience singalong item (lyrics displayed on the screen and also in the PDF print-at-home programme). Our filmmaker Bobby Williams is working hard on editing our extensive archive of footage, and we look forward to sharing the viewing links with our subscribers in the coming weeks. He has done an amazing job on the first film, as I'm sure you'll agree!
CONCERT SNIPPETS :)
