Songbook - The Performers, Band Leaders, Arrangers, Instrumentalists & Vocalists

That indefatigable GASbook devotee, Ron Guarienti has sent news of his latest course (see heading). This takes place on the weekend of June\ 16 - 18 at Higham Hall College, Bassenthwaite Lake, Cockermouth, Cumbria CA13 9SH.
Ron describes the course:
"Performers were there to 'sell songs'. Yet the unique talents of the best stylists delivered much more - some of the most glorious music of the twentieth century drawing from musical theatre, folk and nineteenth-century musical traditions - they left a songbook for all time."
For more details phone 01768 776276 or visit www.highamhall.com.
It sounds great and taking place in an idyllic setting In the Good Old Summertime.
Lance.
