Man Choir offers something substantially different for those who love singing that’s harmonic, heartfelt and of real quality. Created from a diverse group of Oxfordshire men in 2013, Man Choir sings a wide range of classic pop, folk and even polyphonic Georgian material unaccompanied but with a vulnerability and openness that shares their enjoyment of singing with the audience.
At its core, Man Choir is a celebration of what ordinary guys in the community can achieve when they do something they love together. The material and the men who sing it will entertain you, make you smile, challenge you musically and move you in surprising ways.

Featuring a group of Oxfordshire men that didn’t let lockdown get in the way of learning new songs, the evening will move seamlessly from American folk, recent movie soundtracks, give a new twist on a classic shanty and even include a heartfelt Georgian lament. A highlight will be Man Choir’s own treatment of an 80s pop classic and theme for our times, the video for which proved to be an international social media hit in 2020.
Supporting Man Choir will be the brilliant Mandolirium, playing Celtic, bluegrass, ragtime and swing jazz with passion and precision on mandolins and guitar, plus a special guest spot from The Best Sing Since Sliced Bread.
