Daisy has spent her time on the buses talking to people all about their stories. In particular special times when they have taken the bus to meet someone or when they have met someone by surprise.Daisy is to turning these stories, stories people have heard or stories they've made up into mini podcasts so people can hear them (perhaps when travelling on the bus!)
Daisy will be holding Voice Jams at our main Meet Me At The Sundial event on Plymouth Piazza on Saturday 25 March (times tbc)
These will be a session of spontaneous, improvised singing, led by community song-sharer and voice coach Daisy Higman. Together we will build a unique human orchestra, using voice and body percussion to create an exuberant and unique musical composition, playing with the themes of travel, movement and community. You don’t need to be an experienced singer – just bring your voice and your enthusiasm!
