Who Walks This Path (Soul Circus)

By | Published on Tuesday 8 August 2023

Been a bit bashed? This gentle, therapeutic journey into the healing of grief with music may offer respite – especially if you fancy a song. There was more than a touch of the Brothers Grimm about the story; a childhood connection a diverse audience could have in common. We all learned to sing ‘Who Walks This Path’ in our capacity as the village choir and joined in at significant moments. Children were invited to suggest animals who might walk the path and the audience happily made the relevant sound effects. Unamplified folk singing with acoustic instruments and kindly artists provided an intimate show seeking connection between people in a simple, non-threatening way without shying away from the difficulties of life.

Greenside at Nicolson Square, until 12 Aug.
