     I am enjoying the jam sessions and hope I am not getting in the way. Jamming is new to me and my playing level is below the others, but I am working hard to elevate. I want to be able to contribute to the group, not just take.

  • Poway Folk Circle

     I met a lot of really nice and talented people who just love music and singing! I had no idea of what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised when we formed a circle and each person had the choice of playing alone or with others either a song they had written or whatever they'd llike. (Thank you for your encouragement ...as I have just started playing the autoharp... I'll keep practicing!) Looking forward to next month. It might be fun to ask those who come to listen or sing only if they have a song they'd like to hear. There were so many talented musicians I'm sure they would be thrilled to play them.

  • Poway Folk Circle

     A concert and a folk circle????? Wow! The group of people were very nice and the talent level knocked my socks off. I can't wait to go back. It inspired me to practice and bring my performance abilities to new heights. Coordinator Jeff Bertino is an amazing guy. He can do sound work and lead a meeting and play with the best of them.

  • Poway Folk Circle

     We love this group. It's great to be able to expose our young kids to live music. It's hard to find live music that doesn't conflict with afternoon naps or bedtime. 

    Liz S. on Dec 5, 2010.
