One of the most popular activities at HC2016 was Tim’s Tag Time, where we all gathered to learn some great tags* taught to us by Tim Briggs.
Tim is a busy barbershopper; director of Hallmark of Harmony (BABS), Sheffield Harmony (SAR31), lead of The Emerald Guard quartet (BABS QC Champions 2013) and baritone of mixed quartet world silver medalists, Hannah and the Hurricanes – and it means that he has plenty of tags up his sleeve to teach us at Harmony Camp.
As he has experience working in mens, ladies and mixed key, there will surely be a part that fits your singing range perfectly.
HC2016 saw one session of Tim’s Tag Time over the weekend, and we have twisted his arm and bribed him with beer to double – yes DOUBLE the amount of Tag Time at HC 2017 with two one hour sessions.
If you enjoy your tag singing, then over the coming weeks, we will have TWO more exciting announcements that I am sure will float your boat – both of them being suggestions from last years attendees.
Tickets go on sale in just FOUR days! 10am on the 10th of the 10th.

*Tags – for those who are new to Barbershop, Tags are the ends of songs, often the most satisfying and exciting to sing. Teaching and singing tags has become part of the barbershop social scene and you will often find us singing them in small groups with a beer in hand late into the evening. Stand alone Tags without a whole song are now common and can often be improvised (woodshed) so many variations of the same tag may be heard. The best thing about them is that you need zero experience of singing barbershop before you dive right in!
