An Off The Grid extravaganza, singing from coast to coast around the solstice and the longest days of the year - from dawn on Lindisfarne, to sunset in St Bees, this is truly a singing odyssey!

Join us for as much, or as little, of the journey as you fancy. There is no cost to participate in this other than your own / shared travel costs, and the costs of any food / drink you want for the journey. Whenever we can, we'll eat together in a 'Jacob's Join' style, so you might want to bring some food / drink to share. If you're interested in a car share with other singers, or want to arrange an exchange of hospitality with singers from the other side of the country, drop dave@davecamlin.com a line for more info. If you've got any good ideas for songs about the sun, the solstice, the land, journeys, singing, communities or anything else that might be good to sing on this kind of journey, post your ideas here...
