What we're about

This group is for pub sings, chantey sings, and other traditional singing gatherings within hailing distance of Boston. Such sessions typically emphasize traditional songs with choruses everyone can join in on. The group is intended to be a complement to the Boston Song Sessions website: http://www.bostonsongsessions.org/ ­

Somerville Armory Virtual Pub Sing - 4th Tuesday

Online event

Come share chorus songs!

Zoom link: Email [masked] for details.

For best results:
* If you can, download and install the latest version of the Zoom app and enable original sound.
* Have a good network connection.
* Have a decent microphone.
* Turn off automatic volume control
--------------------------------

Based on a traditional English pub sing, but with a bit of an American flavor, our session meets twice a month (on each 2nd and 4th Tuesday), and is open to all.

Pub singing emphasizes spontaneity, rich harmonies, and energetic joy. But, most of all, it emphasizes ***GROUP PARTICIPATION***! We're looking for songs that allow everyone to join in, rather than solo performances that reduce everyone but the leader to the role of passive observer.

We love the fine old drinking songs and know plenty of sea chanteys and chorus songs from the British Isles and New England. But pretty much anything goes, as long as it encourages everyone to participate. Bring a song to share, or just join in on the choruses.

Very important to us is that ABSOLUTELY NOBODY SHOULD EVER FEEL PRESSURED INTO LEADING A SONG. Of course we hope you'll be interested in leading a song, but there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with spending the session singing along, without leading a song.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For those that are able, please consider making a donation to Arts at the Armory, at https://artsatthearmory.org/donate/, to help them through this difficult time. We _really_ want it to still be there when we're ready to resume gathering in person!
