Workshops

A Story Singer and Songwriter with something to share.

Holly has written and sung for as long as she can remember.  In 2019/20 she is branching out to share her love of songwriting and the impact that listening to and writing music can have on people.

Holly will be tutoring on the songwriting retreat at Halwsay Manor with Reg Meuross.
