Wren Music is an artist-led folk arts organisation based in Okehampton. The mission is to work with music and culture in order to educate, inspire creativity, promote inclusion, and celebrate identity. Wren works with all ages, from early years to older adults, in a variety of settings, from schools to theatres and from the street to residential homes.


Her Story

This is the fourth annual International Women's Day concert from the Her Story team at Wren Music. Each year we take a theme and explore the stories of women - both historic and contemporary, local and international - through folk songs and newly written songs in the folk style. The performance features professional artists from Wren alongside an open-access community choir, which is formed in the January of each year.

Marilyn Tucker, Sarah Owen, Amy Wilson and the Her Story Choir from Wren Music take a vocal tour of women’s lives through songs of wool, lace, linen, factories and fields.
