About Carmel Edwards…
Carmel has been singing since the age of 5, and sings as a soloist or with choral groups in and around the East Midlands. Before moving to Derbyshire in 2013 she sang for many years with the Nottingham Bach Choir with whom she performed as a soloist. In Nottingham she sang with Farnaby & Co, a small musical ensemble specialising in unaccompanied music, in particular English madrigals of the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods.
She is classically trained, studying currently with Lynne Wayman. However she enjoys singing a variety of musical styles, and was for several years the lead singer for “The Dirty Thirties”, a band who put a modern twist to music from the 1920s and 30s.
She has made two professional recordings for a local company producing French language resource materials, and in 2006 recorded a CD with Farnaby & Co.
Carmel has taken part in numerous Festivals and competitions, including the National Eisteddfod of Wales in 2010, and has been praised for the pure quality of her sound. She has also performed in various charity concerts, and has written and performed in her own show featuring the music of Ivor Novello which she will be producing again in 2016 as a fundraiser for a local sheltered housing complex.
When not singing she like to play ukelele, and combines both as a volunteer at Singing for the Brain sessions put on by the Alzheimers’s Society.
Megan is an accomplished young pianist who has experience of playing for weddings, including providing incidental music for the reception. She has a wide repertoire, from jazz to classical, ballads to modern classics.
