Seventh Ireland Sacred Harp Convention - Singing School

03/03/2017 — 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm — St. Maries of the Isle N.S. — Cork

The Sacred Harp Singers of Cork have been gathering weekly to sing four-part harmony music in the American shape-note folk tradition since 2009. The shape-note system uses squares, triangles, circles and diamonds to represent notes in the scale to make the music easy to sing for beginners and experienced alike. This influence of this tradition can be heard in the songs of Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Hank Williams and the Stanley Brothers, all of whom came from shape note singing backgrounds.

The Sacred Harp refers to the human voice and is also the name of the tunebook from which we sing, first published in 1844 in Georgia (USA), containing songs with roots in Irish and European folk traditions. Unlike conventional choral music, we sing with our full natural voices, for a more powerful and energetic sound. This is a living tradition with all-day singing conventions all over US, Europe and Australia, including ours in Cork on the first weekend in March. This year’s convention is expected to draw 160-200 singers.

All voices are welcome and no experience is necessary; the shape note system is designed to make it easy for beginners to learn to read music! This is a participatory tradition, so while listening is welcome, singing is encouraged.
Friday 3rd 7-9pm: Singing school with Jonathon Smith, a renowned U.S. singer
Saturday 4th / Sunday 5th, 10am-4pm: Convention singing

Half day Essential Pruning with Alan Pitcher

09/03/2017 — 11:00 am - 2:00 pm — Cork Photo Gallerty — Cork City

Workshop: Half day Essential Pruning by Alan Pitcher.
Date: Thursday 9th March
Time: 11 – 2pm
Venue: Cork Photo Gallery, The Lord Mayor’s Pavilion, Fitzgerald’s Park.
Cost: €40
Suitable for ages 16+.

Pruning is a task that can often intimidate even the most experienced of gardeners. Fear not – this half day workshop will take the mystery out of pruning once and for all! All aspects of pruning will be covered, from the theory through to technique, with lots of practical advice as well as specific pruning techniques for different groups of plants (roses, climbers, shrubs, fruit trees). Tool selection and maintenance will also be covered.

This workshop is essential for people who would like to be able to keep their garden under control but are frightened to tackle anything! Participants may bring along their own pruning tools if they wish but this is not essential.

Alan Pitcher

Alan Pitcher, a lifelong passionate gardener, who refuses to be anything but organic and sustainable. His consuming love of trees, hedgerows and the nature that they support, encourages him in his work of designing for wildlife and hopefully inspiring others to do likewise. A traditional beekeeper, he now works towards a gentler and more considerate way of living with them, which influences all aspects of his work, seeing every garden as a potential haven for wildlife. An experienced teacher in a wide range of gardening topics, including topics such as soil management, growing vegetables, propagation and specialised pruning techniques.

Alan draws on his gardening heroes, the likes of John Seymour, Christopher Lloyd and Klaus Laitenberger to try and motivate others into creating a non-toxic, highly productive and beautiful environment, from which all can benefit. He has planted thousands of trees, both native and exotic, established miles of native hedgerow and sown a million seeds, his legacy. His belief? The magic of a wild, healthy environment, full of natural theatrics, is something we all deserve to be part of.

Alan Pitcher was Assistant Manager at The Secret Garden, Cork from 2006 – 2016, during which time is won Greenest Garden Centre for the UK & Ireland. He now concentrates on teaching and private design and consultation work.
