From Pub to Pulpit – Concert
October 14 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
A hugely successful concert tour that has seen thousands of people across the country singing together to turn folk songs into hymns will have a final performance in Camden Town on 14th October as a fundraiser for St Michael’s Church.
The critically acclaimed From Pub to Pulpit tour features Camden folk group Broomdasher and The Pagoda Project and has wowed full houses at more than twenty Cathedrals and Festivals, celebrating Ralph Vaughan Williams’ 150th birthday. St Michael’s in Camden Town will be the only Central London venue of the year-long tour.
In the concert, the audience joined the organ, choir and two groups in a unique and rousing tribute to Vaughan Williams, a renowned folk song collector. He borrowed the tunes from some of the working people’s favourite folk songs to use for some of the best hymns in the 1906 English hymn he edited.
