Barbershop Workshop

Barbershop Workshop

Come along and try singing Barbershop Style with this 2hr workshop with the Clwyd Clippers.  Then join them in a song on our outdoor stage on the Triangular Square at 5:30.

Open to anyone over the age of 16.

The Clwyd Clippers is a men's chorus based in Kinnerton, about 6 miles from Chester. Our members are drawn from across the North West of England and North Wales. We enjoy singing unaccompanied four part harmony in the barbershop style - think of the Gareth Malone BBC series "The Naked Choir".

In four part harmony the melody of the song is sung by the voice part known as the lead, the second highest of the four. The other parts provide the harmonies around the lead line. The tenor is the highest and the bass part, as you might expect, provides the harmony at the lower end of the scale. The baritone "fills in" the gaps which may be above or below the lead voice part. 

We are primarily known as a barbershop chorus, but our repertoire includes songs of all genres and ages. We sing songs from musicals, traditional songs, choral songs and pop songs. Arrangements of recent hits have proved particularly popular on our "sing outs".
