Join Dorset-born folk singer Alastair Simpson for a walk around the fields and tracks north of Dorchester, and along the way hear traditional folk songs from the county and further afield.
Many folk songs belong in the outdoors, especially when they tell stories of the people who live and work there. Alastair is becoming known for his unaccompanied singing of traditional and modern folk songs, and is a lover of the Dorset countryside and nature which inhabits it. These popular walks take in some beautiful scenery, and bring an opportunity to learn something of countryside ways, as well as meeting with the past to hear these old songs.

Dogs welcome, so long as they don’t ‘sing along’! Subject to weather conditions.
