DAMASCUS, PA - Farm Arts Collective will be hosting a song exchange on Saturday, June 12 from 3-6 p.m. Singers at all levels are invited to attend this free event. Bring a song to share/teach to each other. Songs from around the world, folks songs, and original music are all welcome and encouraged.
Songs can be shared a cappella, with or without sheet music - whatever form of transmission is most comfortable for participants.
The event will take place in the courtyard at Farm Arts Collective greenhouse on Willow Wisp Organic Farm, 38 Hickory Lane, Damascus, PA 18415 and will be led by musician and music therapist Katie Down and theatre artist, Tannis Kowalchuk.
Katie Down is a multi-instrumentalist, sound artist, educator and music therapist. An improviser and classically trained flutist, she also sings in Ladino with her group Sofie Salonika and lots of bawdy songs with The Ukuladies and plays the steel cello, glass percussion, and other odd instruments with her ensemble, NewBorn Trio.
Katie has sung with the Bulgarian choir, Yasna Voices in NY and received a travel grant to study in Bulgaria with Kremena Stanchova. She currently teaches in the music therapy Department at SUNY New Paltz and is the regional coordinator and lead therapist for the New York chapter of The Angel Band Project, providing free music therapy for survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence.
Tannis Kowalchuk is the artistic director of Farm Arts Collective, she has been collecting folk songs from around the world for many years, and is looking forward to sharing the harmony with everyone.
