About Maelstrom

A community choir based in Blackburn, Lancashire. We welcome anyone who simply enjoys singing.

Maelstrom is our All Male Acapella Group.

Under the leadership of our musical director, Jeff Borradaile, we sing an exciting range of songs, all a cappella. No audition! We perform to a high standard at events throughout the year, and welcome experienced singers to become involved and encourage those who may be new to choral singing. We meet on the second and fourth Monday of every month 7.00 pm – 9.15 pm.
