Our purpose is to have a great time singing and playing all kinds of folk music as a group. Anyone who loves folk music -- from the 60's Woodstock era to the present, including roots music, Irish music and folk/country -- will enjoy this group. We welcome those that can sing and/or play wonderfully and those who like to sing along or just listen.
We welcome all acoustic musicians who love the genre and enjoy having others sing along.
If as a result of this meetup, other gatherings emerge -- from trips to folk festivals, audiences for open mics or member performances, lists of coffeehouses or great venues -- that will all be gravy.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
