Monthly party

Monthly singing parties

Everyone is welcome to the monthly singing parties - you don't even have to be a member of the Society. The usual format is that we go around the room, taking turns requesting songs, leading songs, or performing (or, you can just pass when it's your turn). We often start with a potluck dinner (see the individual listings to confirm).

Instruments are welcome but not required -- there are usually a few guitars, and occasionally a mandolin, concertina, fiddle or other instruments in the mix. Feel free to bring a copy of Rise Up Singing! if you have one (we often have spare copies), or other written music to pass around, if you want. You can also teach us a song without it being written down.

Everyone is welcome! The election only takes 5 minutes or so, at the very beginning - otherwise it's a regular singing party. Feel free to bring copies of Rise Up Singing! and/or Rise Again. (we'll have some extras to share) or other written music, or come ready to request or lead songs from memory, or just sing along. Instruments are welcome but not required.
