Musical Greetings! Here’s your chance to sing & play well-known pop and folk songs of the 60s & 70s (along with a few oldies from before 1960) Usually about 15 people attend the song circle and we have a great time! If you like to sing and/or play an acoustic instrument, please join us!
All levels of singers welcome - beginners to choir members! We also welcome guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, bass, dulcimer, flute, harmonica players, etc.
Someone starts by picking a song from our songbook of popular pop/folk/country/camp songs. (see song list below) When your turn around the circle comes, you may lead the song, request that someone else lead the song you’ve picked, or pass. We sing the song together, and then move to the next person in the circle and repeat! We request that instrument players be mindful of drowning out voices with loud instruments. When the harmonies ring, it's truly magical.
We provide copies of the songbook (with guitar chords for instrument players) at the song circle. To print your own copy (or store it on your electronic device) - email [masked] - These songbooks are provided for educational and personal use only. All lyrics & music are the property and copyright of their respective owners.
Bring your friends, a beverage (non-alcoholic) in a closed container & your enthusiasm! Acoustic instrument players should bring a portable music stand.
You are welcome to bring a song that you then choose when it’s your turn. The song should be well-known (popular) & singable (songs with choruses preferred). Bring 15 copies with the words & guitar chords. Please fit the entire song on one page. Recommend using Times New Roman font with a minimum of 12 font size. When the chords are repeated you can leave them off after the first set. Highlight the chorus in bold.
