How does the Harmony Circle work? You pick a song from a songbook of classic pop and folk songs from the 60s and 70s (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; The Beatles; John Denver; Simon & Garfunkel; Peter, Paul, & Mary; etc.) then our talented guitarist will lead us through the verses and we’ll create our best harmonies. Afterwards, we move to the next person in the circle and repeat! Fun, lots of opportunity to sing your heart out to songs you long to sing. We provide the songbooks.

How does the Music Circle work? Join several instrumentalists and singers in a “hootenanny”-style sing-along. You pick a song from Rise Up Singing (1,200 to choose from) to lead, or ask others to lead it. Each gets a turn to choose a song, then we repeat. Often we have guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, percussion, autoharp, and more—beginners to pros. Bring your book, although we have extras.

For both circles, anyone is welcome, of all talent levels, no pre-registration is required.

Harmony Music Circle: Second Friday of every month, 7-9pm. Join 20+ singers and 1-2 guitars to sing the great harmony songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Music Circle: Third Friday of every month, 7–9pm. Bring your voices, Rise Up Singing songbooks (some extras will be there), enthusiasm, friends, and instruments (all are welcome!).

Second & Third Fridays • 7pm • Free • More information here.
