Circle at the Artists' Guild:
In addition to the concert series, there's a monthly song circle at the Artists' Guild. It's held in the same room as the concerts, and it's open to everyone.
We take turns around the circle singing songs, and maybe singing or playing along. We sing folk songs, pop songs, and hymns, and sometimes we have an improvised music jam. The only rule is that it's all acoustic, with no amplifiers or microphones.
Everyone is welcome to take a turn in the circle, or just to listen. If you come just to listen, feel free to bring a quiet activity such as sketching or reading.
The song circle is held on the third Sunday of each month, starting at 7:00 (used to be 6, now it's 7) and going till at least 9:00. Come for all or any part of that time. The next song circle will be on Sunday, September 15, 2019.
The Guild requests a $3 donation to the Guild at each session from each person who attends the session.

|No more e-mail notices of
I'm no longer sending out e-mail notices about the concerts, since I don't have reliable information about when they're held and who's performing. But the song circle information on this page is accurate and reliable.
