Tour Stories

"The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go oft awry" - Robert Burns

One of the most famous lines ever written by a poet also describes many a tour, which often go awry. This is meant to be a fun section for all of us, where we can share our tour stories and experiences. We’d love to hear from you if you’ve been to a Tribe of One show and have a story to tell!

Writing an Anthem!

Written by Rik Leaf
When I spend time in schools, I want to create environments where students (and teachers!) can explore their creative gifts and abilities. We all need a safe place to take creative risks and try something for the first time. So that’s my first job…to create that safe space. The songwriting workshops are great for this,…
