What we're about

This is a group for anyone who loves '60s-'70s folk music sing alongs - acoustic guitarists or folks who love to sing. Non professionals get together monthly to take turns singing the songs that defined us at an earlier (ahem!) age. Anyone who knows how to welcome others and share the limelight is welcome. This is not a performance venue. We go around the circle. Each person chooses a song (from a shared songbook). Guitarists and singers play that song. Then, next person's turn. Please no drums or banjos (they tend to set the pace a bit adamantly - sorry). If you have Rise Up Singing, please bring it!
An earlier version of this group existed (2008? - 2015?) for seven years, then meeting at Oakwood Starbucks and elsewhere. Here is a Facebook link to the book we used in those days, courtesy of Lary Eaton.

Dayton Folk Music *Zoom* Along!

Online event

Because of Internet lag time, you'll mute yourself while singing along with a song (sounds weird, I know). The guitarist will be both the instrumental and the voice. After the song is over, you unmute and we can talk. Try it. It's not as good as real-time, but it's nice to be back together in some fashion.
