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.

To Be Determined Dates in 2019 after Feb. - Dayton Folk Music Sing Along Meetup

Elmcroft Assisted Living in Washington Township

Play guitar? Bring it! Only sing? Fine! Got a Rise Up Singing Songbook? Love to have 'em! Choose a song from that songbook or from one we have copies of (Lary's Folk Rock Song Book). For now, we are a quarterly group - next planned meetup is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 12th. Meetup isn't allowing me to put this in as quarterly, so stay tuned - there may be some false invitations. Want to chip in to help pay the Meetup charges? If you can, that's great, but no worries - we just love love love to sing!
