B-Naturals Workshop – 9th February 2019

54 singers attended a collaborative workshop between the AMLS and the B-Naturals in Whitchurch on Saturday 9th February where a full day of effort saw the teaching and then recording of four songs. All arranged by the B-Naturals they included ‘Oh You Pretty Things – David Bowie; I Am The Walrus – John Lennon; Surfer Girl – Brian Wilson and The American Stranger (a new song for the B-Naturals).

Those that attended this very successful, enjoyable day ranged from far and wide – Alton to Frome and Oxfordshire were finally regaled to a very irreverent version of the Elvis Presley hit Blue Bijou – the tale of an aerial toupee – I Blew By You - which caused much merriment.

Sincere thanks to those that attended and the B-Naturals themselves for making the day so much fun.
