"Singing Stories, Weaving Tales" rehearsals

Due to conflicting commitments there are currently openings for singers who are interested in joining the project.
Ulrika-Igraine is at present looking for 3 male and 3 female singers. Rehearsals are held weekly, on Tuesdays, in central Exeter. All ages welcome, even if you're new to folk music, though singers would preferably have choir experience, or experience of singing as part of a group. Singers need to be able to pick up the material reasonably fast and be willing to rehearse some in their own time, working on learning their respective harmonies from recordings that are made available online.

Butterscotch Sunday and Scandiland present Antichrist

EVENT Sunday, 16 November @ 7:30 pm

"Butterscotch Sunday and Scandiland invite you to sink with us into the deepest recesses of Lars von Trier’s psyche, with a pop-up screening of Antichrist, his bloody, anguished scream of a film that comes loaded with brutal acts of mutilation, unsimulated sex and only the darkest of emotions. To hear this scream and let it resonate through you, come to the Sylvania Hut, in Mincinglake Park, at 7.30 p.m. on Sunday 16th November. Join us for a short trail through the woods, led by song-writer and conceptual artist Ulrika-Igraine, who will be performing a series of songs that explore nature, femininity and religion which have emerged from her Swedish-Peruvian heritage and love of folk music."
