A VOCAL teacher is organising an evening of parlour songs with friends and pupils to celebrate her recent achievement of being handed an MBE.
Carol Gould has prepared the ‘Parlour Evening’ and it is being supported by a wide range of vocalists at Brewhouse’s bar bistro, in Union Street, from 7.30pm tomorrow.
She said: “Parlour songs are special because they belong to an age before even radio was invented, when folk had to create their own entertainment around the fireside in the dark evenings.
“In keeping with the late Victorian times the subjects of the music would be nostalgic and sentimental.”
