The Liberty Blues Brothers

A new adventure encouraging men to sing together.

Shortly after Easter, I asked the male singers (blues) from the West Bridgford choir and the East Leake choir if they’d like a sectional rehearsal – just them, nailing their harmonies. I knew they could all do it but sometimes lacked the confidence to really sing out well. We did this and really enjoyed it. And so we planned a workshop! One song in one evening at Bunny Village Hall – in just 2 part harmony.

One of the lovely things that came out of this rehearsal, apart from the singing, was the trip across the road to the pub afterwards. It got me thinking.

So, we are now planning another workshop in July…..and are opening this up to any male voices.

And after that….. a singing ensemble for men regularly from September! Exciting stuff everyone!

Here’s what some of our men have said about singing together….

“Singing in the Liberty Blues is not only a chance to enjoy the music, but also to make new friends and feel good too—singing lowers stress and helps your immune system too! There’s a great comradery and plenty of laughs, and even the odd pint after a rehearsal. All in all, a good night out.” – Mike

“In the last month Kari has created a new initiative of bringing together the combined male voices of the two choirs based in West Bridgford & East Leake to form a male only choir known as the Liberty Blues Brothers. This been enthusiastically and excitedly received by all the male members of both choirs. Already we have had two sessions together and it was inspiring to hear the group’s voices reaching their crescendos . All of us agree this a welcome addition to our singing experience within the wider choirs.” – John

“Singing together as the Liberty Blues has given us the opportunity to practice our harmonies for a range of songs and become more cohesive as a group. It’s also meant that we can rehearse the songs or the parts that we have found trickier within different songs. For me personally, I have grown in confidence since the group began and am really looking forward to being part of it moving forwards.” – Liam

“In the past, I would never have imagined I’d be part of a choir, but within no time at all, I feel at ease and am building enough confidence to participate in live gigs.” – Simon

“Singing in the Liberty Blues is just great, being part of such a powerful sound is so uplifting. Male voices working together to produce something so special, it’s such a buzz” – Alan
