Barley Rye Choir

Ring O'Bells, St Mary's Grove, Nailsea

Barley Rye Choir was formed in 2000 as a millennium project of Nailsea Folk Club. The idea was to offer supporters of the club an opportunity to express themselves. In the intervening years, the choir has developed into a supportive group that also makes regular performances.

Barley Rye is a community choir - we do not audition, and there is no requirement to be able to read music. We learn songs mostly by ear - both together in practice sessions, or at home, from sound files that we distribute to the group.
