Barley Rye Folk Choir originally formed as a Millennium project in 1999. Little did we know that we would be going from strength to strength in 2017 – still singing and having fun. The choir is open to all-comers – the main requirement for joining being the enjoyment of both singing and folk music. We perform at all sorts of functions and festivals singing primarily local and traditional songs with our own original harmony arrangements.
The choir repertoire includes puppet performances. We take traditional mummers characters such as St George or Robin Hood, create our own puppets, scripts and songs and enlist the help of our audiences in bringing the stories to life. We raise money each year for charity – this year our chosen beneficiary being Age UK North Somerset.
