Get together with fellow folk fans and help us raise the roof twice a month! IF YOU LIKE TO SING AND/OR PLAY AN INSTRUMENT, WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!!!

We take turns selecting songs for the group to sing and play (passing's OK). Most of our songs come from the Rise Up Singing and Rise Again books, so if you have a copies, bring them along.  (If you don't, you can share or borrow one from us.) You also have the option of going solo or handing out lyrics and chords to a song not in the book. Whatever you do, *ENTHUSIASTIC PARTICIPATION* IS THE KEY!

We meet the first and third Saturday of the month from 2:00 to 5:00 pm in a comfortable indoor location in Arlington, VA, close to metro. There is plenty of parking available in the area.

We sing all kinds of music from well-known traditional songs (and not so well-known songs members want to teach us), to songs by the big names in folk and folk/rock from the '50s to the '70s, to songs by today's indie/folk musicians.  And what's a sing along without some Beatles, pop songs, rock songs, traditional British songs and Irish folk songs.  We really mix it up.

We're a friendly fun group! DON'T BE SHY ABOUT SINGING AND/OR JAMMING, COME CHECK US OUT!
