Hartford, CT: Meetinghouse Sing-Along!

Maggie Greene, Fred Louis,  and Ed Savage are offering an opportunity to CT Singing families, Peoples Music Network singers, song-writers and audience members to join in song with acoustic instruments on the second Saturday of each month from 2 to 5 PM. We will have song-sheets and some copies of the Rise Up Singing and Rise Again songbooks available. Bring along your own ‘Rise Up Singing’ if you have one, as we have used it a lot in other months.   We bring a little juice drink and herbal teabags and gratefully enjoy any other snacks you might choose to bring.

How does this work ?   It is not  an “open mike” event, although solos are welcomed.  We’ll put some chairs in a circle and take turns singing or playing, with those who know the tune or words joining in as they wish. You can come early or come late, whatever fits your family schedule. The UU Meeting House is at 50 Bloomfield Avenue in Hartford near the University of Hartford. Signs inside the door will direct you to the sing-along room.
