Tenby Male Choir
An evening of traditional singing from Tenby’s very own male choir.
Tenby, a small picturesque town in South Pembrokeshire, is not only a tourist town but an enthusiastic community spirited town. One of the superior community organisations in my opinion, is of course, Tenby Male Choir, who in their 40 years of existence have carried the name of Tenby far and wide.
The choir are tremendous ambassadors for the town, and this has been recognised by virtue of the fact that it is one of only four organisations granted the use of the town’s Coat of Arms by the Town Council. The choir has also recently been honoured by the Mayor and Town Council with a certificate acknowledging its service to the community.
Founded in 1975, Tenby Male Choir has, over the past 40 years, grown from strength to strength not just in chorister numbers but also in it’s musical reputation under the guiding light of our Music Director Ian Williams [affectionately know as “Wilbur”] and our accompanist Jill Williams [no relation]. Today, as a well-established Male Voice Choir in West Wales, at 50 choristers strong, the choir prides itself on the professional reputation that it has grown “From the Heart of Pembrokeshire.
Tenby Male Choir FaceBook Page
“Sally Barker is a singer’s singer and a songwriter’s songwriter. You will remember the very first time you heard her sing for her voice is like no other. She has the ability to lift the words off the page and can move people to tears armed with that ‘bucket-full of soul’ voice.
As a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Sally has had a long and varied career in music. Labelled a folk artist for much of her successful career, Sally’s appeal stretches across many more musical genres. A much respected solo artist with half a dozen solo albums to her name, Sally is also celebrated for her live and studio work fronting all-female folk supergroup The Poozies.” She has sung with Bob Dylan and Robert Plant.
In April 2014 Sally appeared in the final of the Voice UK 2014. The prime time BBC TV programme saw Sally consistently championed by her mentor, Sir Tom Jones.
Sir Tom told Sally “For me, it was just full of emotion. It was just so beautiful that I couldn’t help myself. You swept me off my feet”
