Join Janet Wood and Sheffield Socialist Choir to learn songs which raise the spirits and promote camaraderie. The songs will be inspirational and fun to learn. There will be no need for singing experience or the ability to read music. The songs are designed to be sung in the streets and at demonstrations.
