The 35th annual Winter Green Fair at Oxford Town Hall on Saturday 5th December will, as in previous years, have a varied and fascinating music programme. These are the musicians who will be playing and singing, starting at 12.00 noon:
Delaram Izadi and Chris Hills will do a performance of tambour music, driven by rhythms played on the tabla drums. Chris Hills says the music is energetic and evokes the spirit of Hindustan and Persia.
Hazel Dawe, Treasurer of Oxfordshire Green Party notes:
"Dick Wolff, one of our Green city Councillors, is a regular contributor to the music at the Green Fair. An enthusiastic participant in English and Scandinavian traditional music sessions around Oxford, member of folk group 'Three Pressed Men' and leader of busy ceilidh band ('Traction'), Dick believes that music is not something we passively 'consume' but actively create together - and that fits well with Green political philosophy."
The Sea Green Singers, an Oxford based choir, have chosen the environment and immigration as their themes for this year. Music Director Sarah Westcott says:
'We are currently on a recruitment drive. If these, or similar issues, inspire you please do get in touch with [email protected] Do come and join us at our rehearsals on Monday evenings in the city centre. Singers of all levels of ability are welcome.'
