Ports and harbors are places where culture and ideas are exchanged. From Norwegian sea spells to Ukrainian Rusalka songs, Headlands Community Folk Ensemble is a vocal arts project exploring song traditions from Iceland, Eastern Europe, the British Isles, the Baltics, Scandinavia, and the Caucasus. Following ancient trade routes over land and sea, we will also explore the folklore, history, and ethnographic context of each song while simultaneously developing our ensemble skills: blending, vocal placement and quality, pitch, pronunciation, and various vocal techniques unique to each tradition. Kristine Barrett directs the ensemble.
