Jane, thanks for your fantastic suggestions. You're right in tune with us. Unfortunately, we finished our final selections a few weeks ago. But I think if you come, you'll really have fun and enjoy what we have selected and what others nominated.
We are a group of people who love to sing. Bluegrass harmony is easy to learn, so it makes the singing that much more enjoyable. We have 2 professional musicans/instructors who come with their guitars and voices. We meet from usually in the vicinity of Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY. The cost is $30 per person per class. This may sound like a lot, but we have great instructors, and the enjoyment and camaraderie make it worthwhile. I just found without the professional leadership the group would get stale very quickly. If you can sing in tune, you are a welcome member. We learn new songs each meeting, so the material is always fresh. Even if you think this is not your style of music, it's a whole different experience in person when you're singing it, not just listening to it. Come on out, we have a blast. Also, we have met monthly since June 2008, and there is usually at least 20 people in attendance. Not everyone who comes signs up thru Meetup. So even if you only see 3 people have said they are coming, it's because everyone else notified me or Jalopy separately. Space is limited to 25. Don't chicken out at the last minute; you won't regret it.
