Penelope Swales with Al & Rodney Dowling – Circle singing for fun and vocal adventure

Saturday 1 May  10am – 12.00pm 


Singer and songwriter Penelope Swales will lead a workshop in circle singing. Learn to improvise music on the spot in a safe, fun environment. Penelope will guide you through a number of vocal games designed to encourage spontaneity and get the creative juices flowing. 

This singing workshop will be a special event as those participating will learn a song composed by treasured Bpangerang elder Uncle Freddie Dowling.

The lyrics were inspired by the local environment.

It is a powerful song called “Torryong River” and it is infused with the affection and deep connection Freddie had for the Ovens River. “
