Funk Wire flash mob sing-along

On Saturday 29th 2019 June the Funk Wire held a flash mob sing-along in the Square as part of the Grassington festival. The audience quickly got into the swing and enjoyed singing along with the choir for a 45 minute session of well known songs.  The feedback at the end was very positive with a number of people expressing an interest in joining us.  Well done to all who participated.

JUNE 2019 GREAT NEWS - The Funk Wire has just been awarded a generous grant by the Yorkshire Dales Millenium Trust through the Roger Stott Community Grants Programme. This generous grant has bought a new iPad which the choir can use to store the music backing tracks and also a top of the range projector. Our thanks go to the YDMT Roger Stott Community grant for their support.
