This group is for people who enjoy singing with others. While primarily focused on folk music, the heart of it is about building a community of people who enjoy singing songs they love and learning new ones. I have hosted similar groups in other places I have lived and this is what you can expect:

• A song circle of 15-30 people where each person can start a song, ask for someone else to start a song they like or pass

• A warm welcome regardless of how new you are to folk music, whether you play an instrument or not and whether you sing “well”

• A bias towards songs others can join in on versus a performance venue

• Some outdoors and some indoors gatherings

• Instrumentalists very welcome

• All ages

• Folks leading songs from either memory or from songbooks

• Potlucks

• A chance to make new friends with common interests

If you are a person who attends concerts/festivals at the Iron Horse, Falcon Ridge, Old Songs or coffeehouses, you are likely to find yourself quickly at home with this group. If you enjoy folk music and are new to it, I hope you will also feel quickly at home. I started attending song circles in my late teens in Cambridge and loved the welcome I felt although I knew very little other than camp songs. Wherever you are in your enjoyment of singing/playing and folk music, I hope this group calls to you.
