Sangstream is a Scots folk choir based in Edinburgh. The choir was founded in 1997 as part of the Scots Music Group. Sangstream became independent in 1999, remaining affiliated to the Scots Music Group. Most of the songs we sing in the choir come from the Scots tradition. We also sing contemporary Scots songs, and some traditional songs from around the world.
Our Musical Director is the fabulous Corrina Hewat, well-known clarsach and song tutor and performer, who started working with us in September 2015.
We recently recorded some videos of songs arranged by Corrina: Frida Kahlo, The Cool of the Day and The Queen of Argyll.
Using the same link, there are also sound recordings of songs arranged by Mairi Campbell who was our wonderful Musical Director for 12 years from 2003: Keep You in Peace, Christmas Song, Baltic Street, When the Snows of Winter Fall, Cauld Blaws the Wind and Hard Winter.
The choir is run by an elected committee. Sangstream meets on Thursday evenings in term-time, from 7-9 pm. We meet at Boroughmuir High School, Viewforth, in Bruntsfield.
