Cowgill Folk Chorale


Cowgill School House - Not far from Dent station


You are welcome to join our group of singers from Dent and Dentdale in the Yorkshire Dales who meet every two weeks for a couple of hours of singing round the fire in the Cowgill School House – not too far from Dent Station (but a long way away from anywhere else.)

I teach a variety of West Gallery carols, seasonal songs, arrangements of folk songs, wassailing songs…we tend to meet in the winter months. I send recordings of the harmony parts and scores for the songs in advance to singers for home study.

We also join the Community Orchard group in Dentdale for a day of Wassailing the apple trees in January, and join Lakeland Voices at the Dent Folk Carols weekend in the village of Dent at the beginning of December.

Session times

Alternate Monday evenings, 7.30-9.20pm

Please ring (015396.21166) or email ( NB ONLY ONE R IN BURBIDGE) first. We can help with lift shares. Singers pay £30 for the term – 5 weeks of singing – cash, cheque or online.
