On 17th May a few of One Acchord went along to support SongWave in both Melrose and Kelso. Isobel visited the event at Marmions in Melrose and reported back that it sounded lovely - the arrangement was slightly different to the one sung by One Acchord.
While walking into Kelso to meet up with SongWave in the Town Square, I found them outside the Fishmongers, so I asked if I could join in as a representative of One Acchord. They were more than happy and then advised that they were singing in unison for some of the song - well I only learned the low part so that was a little bit disconcerting!
Next stop was the square and I was joined by Christine, another Bari, and we sang STAY twice in the square lending our lower harmonies to the overall sound.
We then meandered down to the Mayfield Garden Centre where it was agreed that we would do a FlashMob! So after coffee and cakes Clare Watson started off the song and everyone joined in in small sections to entertain the other diners. Judith arrived as we finished but tells me that she did sing along with the last 4 lines!
It was a beautiful day and the song sounded wonderful. Thank you Clare for giving us the opportunity to sing your song.
