Notes Tembre shares her song that was created in a bathtub during lockdown, "Brave This World". I learn it as she teaches it. We talk about free-ranging children in the natural world, cold water, slowing down, expanding, spicy sweet potato soup, how Tembre can SEE someone find their voice, Ireland, and more. Tembre has been leading group singing since May of 2001, and developed a beautiful online presence hosting "May We Sing" during the lockdown. She says, "Having an English accent and a French name growing up in a rural community here in Ireland was challenging at times," yet the strong connection she has to both the natural world and music means that Ireland has been a beautiful, nurturing home.

Fantastic podcast with Patricia and Tembre. I listened rapturously and loved every song, word, interview question and "feeling state" of both ladies! Can't thank you enough. Patricia is an excellent interviewer, so appealing and enjoyable to listen to. Tembre shared deep and meaningful stories both about her road to singing and childhood, growing up and being in nature a lot--and how these experiences influenced, and continue to influence, her life as a singer and woman in the world. Really enjoyable and uplifting! In this day and age we surely need more of these kinds of delightful and inspiring podcasts. Merci beaucoup!
