Festival & Training Workshops

Previous

Lynn is an experienced and dynamic workshop leader for festivals, folk weekends, conferences, and teaching workshops. A versatile performer and teacher with a vast repertoire and an easy manner onstage, she is often invited as a compère for round-robin workshops with multiple performers, to lead open mikes and circle sings, and to fill out a weekend as a "wild card" in the staff deck. She is also an active mentor of young singers, dancers, and mummers and leads workshops with and for children at all levels. Here are some of the typical topics Lynn can offer at folk festivals and dance/music camps.
