In celebration of St George’s day Ed Hicks is producing a “digital ding dong” online sing along video for Tower Hamlets residents.

Ed Hicks is a local banjo player and music workshop leader, director of The Trad Academy, and runs the London Music Hall Choir.  The London Music Hall Choir sing songs from the Victorian Music Halls; these songs are steeped in local culture, vernacular and history. The songs are sometimes sentimental, often funny and always great fun to sing.

During the pandemic the choir has temporarily taken it’s singing online and has been using Zoom for their weekly “digital ding dong” sessions. For St George’s Day Ed is producing a one-off video of performances of some their favourite songs for you to sing along with.
