Birds in Song (2022 program)

David Kidman
Music 2 / 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Real-time event on festival day with pre-registration required. You can find the registration link near the top of the program page when the link is ready.

This will be a song circle/singaround for the sharing of songs that feature birds. Traditional or contemporary, generic or species-specific — all are welcome in this song-aviary!

David Kidman is a UK-based singer; his repertoire, though classified “contemporary tradition”, encompasses traditional and modern-day ballads, shanties, parodies and songs from non-folk genres. To him, the sharing of, and engagement in, the song and its message are paramount (hence the title of his CD, Songs Worth the Singing). Since lockdown, he has participated extensively in online (Zoom) singing circles and other virtual events staged on both sides of the pond, including hosting/co-hosting and leading themed workshops at various festivals. Although he mainly sings solo, he also enjoys co-singing with fellow-singers in the US, UK, and Australia.
