Here is a membership form (pdf) if you like such a thing. You will note the humor. Please fill it in and send it. (no joke)
These "gather'n's"(picking & singing) are for the entire family. There is good company, plenty of singing, playing, and listening to various types of traditional and contemporary folk music. It is an opportunity to share your songs, learn new ones, and enjoy the company of others who enjoy a wide range of folk music.
Meetings (mostly sing-arounds for all levels of experience, there is a room for instrumentalists) are 1 to 4PM, on the 2nd Sunday of the month (October thru May). New folks are always welcome.
