Wassailing with Lunatraktors at Compton Verney

I was invited to take part in a wassailing event at Compton Verney on 8 of December 2023. Led by a broken folk duo - Lunatraktors, and together with other musicians from Birmingham representing different cultures, we created a spectacular performance filled with somatic sounds based on songs representing our different cultural backgrounds, i.e. Poland, Ukraine, Iran, and Roma.

Czech ceremonial bread-making workshops with Tereza Bušková

Throughout November and December I had the pleasure of supporting Tereza Bušková's traditional Czech ceremonial bread making workshops at Nash Dom CIC in Walsall, UK supported by the Walsall Council. The workshops were open to all women from different backgrounds, but we all made wonderful connections  through this beautiful tradition, folk music and singing. We will be doing more of these workshops focused solely on singing and dancing in January and February 2024!

Moseley Folk Festival 2023

Had fantastic time playing at Moseley Folk Festival this year. This time I performed as part of the Adults band, a Birmingham (UK) based indie-pop / alternative rock group set up by Alex  Townend - Band. I also had the pleasure to meet a Birmingham legend, professor Carl Chinn who was interviewed by The Blind Boy during the festival.
