Far Cry Acapella


Laurence Batley theatre in the centre of Huddersfield


Far Cry is a mixed voice, Huddersfield-based acapella performing group. We sing a variety of songs from different folk traditions around the world, plus original material and the occasional pop song. Although not a political choir, we are committed to social justice and some of our material reflects that. You can hear us sing anything from a rousing Luddite anthem to Georgian lullabies, South African anti apartheid songs to folk carols with a dash of The Beatles and Gershwin.

We meet under the guidance of Jenny Goodman every Thursday evening in term time.

Far Cry is an auditioned group but we work orally with no written music. Practice tracks are available. Our sessions include voice and body warm-up and breath work, as well as work on blend and pitching. There is a strong focus on developing a good sound and we work hard but also have lots of fun. We perform regularly around the locality.

You can see us here and hear one of our original local songs.

Session times

Thursday evenings 7.30 to 9.30 pm
