Song Path 21 credit Robert Piwko


16 October 2023, 10:00am - 12:00pm

Presented in association with Oxford Botanic Garden and Arboretum; the Humanities Cultural Programme Everything is Connected season; and Oxfordshire Mind. Supported by Oxford City Council Community Impact Fund

SongPath is a unique blend of nature, music and wellbeing, now established as an essential, uplifting element of the Festival. This year, for the first time, we head to the magical Harcourt Arboretum, one of the UK’s most important woodland areas that is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. Walk among the trees, experience great music, conversation and a closeness to the healing power of nature, led by singers and SongPath founders Jess Dandy and Joanna Harries. They'll be joined by guest musician Vahid Taremi, a notable figure in the world of Persian music and an virtuosic performer on the shurangiz and setar, and Phil Muil, an expert in taijiquan (tai chi) and qigong, to help us shake off the cobwebs under the leaves.

See Harcourt Arboretum website for travel details.
