I put on my very first VOCAL festival this year here in Izola, which is where I spend the summer months away from London. The 'Beyond Vocals Festival' will become a new regular addition to my 'Beyond Vocals' projects and I am super excited about bringing new vocal artists each year to Izola to perform and run workshops and masterclasses.
This year I had two of my favourite artists from London here. Jamie Doe (Aka The Magic Lantern) and Fini Bearman. I also performed a set with my group ELDA Trio. I had 13 singers from many different corners of Europe including Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Ireland and London. It was a beautiful weekend with some amazing concerts and lots of ensemble singing, songwriting classes, open mic sessions and interesting creative conversations! Some time might also have been spent on indulging in some of the delicious local wine...maybe..;)
