“Keening”- a shared wailing practice

Please email me: anne.macg.wilson at gmail with any questions and to register.

During the development of my solo At Home with the Humorless Bastard, I developed a vocal practice inspired by the old Celtic practice of keening: wailing over a recently-dead person’s body. This workshop is an experiment in “keening” in a group setting. I’d like to offer it to people who might find it useful in their lives or artistic practices (while artistically enriching, it’s a nice practice for when your cat shits in your shoe). That said, the practice is somewhat co-created by the folks who are in the room.

6 weeks of Mondays, January 14th- February 18th, 6:30-7:45 PM at The Whole Shebang

This workshop is open to anyone interested in loud wailing/moaning/singing/burping in the beautifully resonant Whole Shebang studio. No prior vocal training necessary. Priority will be given to folks who can commit to at least 4 of the 6 weeks.

FREE but donations are happily accepted to help cover the cost of the space.

Please note: I have taken about a dozen voice lessons in my life. I do not have a solid foundation of “training.” Please understand that I can’t properly care for your voice and that you take the workshop assuming responsibility for the health and safety of your own voice.
