As well as their work that you see onstage or hear on records, The Bevvy Sisters also have a great wealth of experience in leading choirs.
Heather has over twenty years experience as a singer and arranger of vocals and has in the last few years been increasingly sought after as a choir leader. She formed and directs the 75-strong Soundhouse Choir in 2016 who have since performed in both Edinburgh's Usher Hall and Queens Hall. Queens Hall also chose the choir to endorse last year.
Gina has over 20 years experience as a choir leader and arranger having run several notable choirs in Edinburgh with accompanying concerts in the same prestigious halls. Currently, in her hometown she co-leads the wonderful Pathhead Choir with Sophie Bancroft who celebrate their tenth year this year. Outside her musical work Gina is a Primary School teacher.
Lou brings with her - as well as years of teaching, performing, recording and arranging – past experience with the famous Roundhouse Choir in London appearing at the Roundhouse with Boy George and Mark Ronson.
In a workshop setting, David brings with him over 20 years experience as an accompanist, arranger and writer having worked at length with the likes of Finlay Quaye and Salsa Celtica as well as being the instrumental one-man accompanist for The Bevvy Sisters since their inception. He leads the bass section of the choir and provides accompaniment with guitar.
The Bevvy Sisters simply wish to bring together all their skills, meet your community and have an experience that’s beyond just the ‘gig’.
They would therefore now like to extend an invite to your local community choir(s) to be their special guests to work with them towards a performance together in your village, town or city.
It does not matter how big or small the choir is nor what ability or experience it has.
AN EXAMPLE OF HOW THIS MIGHT WORK: This is completely flexible depending on your situation or set up.
To make this happen, the ‘gig’ then has min. two steps to provide a truly all-round educational and heartful experience for both the local choir and the band.
1 The Bevvy Sisters would host a workshop(s) ahead of their performance. (How many workshops depends on the project.)
2 The Choir join The Bevvy Sisters onstage to perform the pieces.
3 If it is to be a longer project Parts (both audio and score) can be sent in advance to choir-leaders.
Venues might consider running a two-tier ticket price - One price for workshop+gig/Gig ticket only
but this can be flexible depending on the set up suited best to the audience.
Due to the evening nature of the end result this is perhaps better suited to adult choirs, however The Bevvy Sisters also delight in teaching kids so please talk to us to see what’s possible.
Producing great results whilst putting the emphasis on having fun!
