Cove Burgh Hall is preparing to host a night of live a capella singing as The All Sorts get ready to take to the stage in the village.

The Glasgow-based group, who will perform at Cove Burgh Hall next weekend, is made up of four professional opera singers.

Barbara Cole-Walton is the soprano, Grace Wain provides the melody, Sarah Shorter is the tenor and Jane Monari is the bass.

The women have been friends for a number of years and decided to form the group about a year ago.

Grace explained: “All four of us are freelance opera singers, and one day we were driving up to Inverness and sitting in the back of the car, and thought it would be quite fun to have a go at some unaccompanied stuff.

“So, we gave it a go and it went quite well. It was fun.”

“We have done a few concerts so far. We did one in Glasgow and we sang for Brewhemia in Edinburgh and we have done a couple of ‘shammer’ appearances. We play quite a lot of pieces which is really nice.”

The group’s set list ranges from Disney songs, traditional barbershop and Motown. The talented ladies also have a number of opera pieces in arrangements of four voices.

The performance in Cove Burgh Hall will be the first time the ladies have got together to perform in public since they all returned to Glasgow as Canadian Barbara and Philidelphia-born Jane are back home for a holiday.

“It will be nice to all come back together for the concert after being away,” Grace continued, “and we have been really well received so far.

“We think the sounds work, but it might not be until other people hear you that you find out it doesn’t.

“But hopefully we have a really good audience for Cove Burgh Hall. We are really looking forward to it.

The All Sorts’ Cove concert takes place on Saturday, September 1 at 8pm (doors open at 7.30pm).

Tickets cost £10 and are available from Cove Burgh Hall, Kilcreggan Post Office and the cafe in Kilcreggan.
