Bill Song Circle Locations (162* d) RE: Song Circle Locations 02 Sep 97

Howdy All (again),

I'm not sure that I would classify the club I work with most as a proper song circle (but certainly would not classify it as an improper song circle). Dulci-More: Folk & Traditional Musicians meets twice a month in Salem, Ohio. We get 10-35 folks out each time, and play mostly from song books that I have put together (based largely on my tastes and requests from the members). Songs are chosen as we go around the circle, but most people choose songs and then ask me to lead them (and I'm so used to that role that I often just go ahead and lead them without asking). Most of our membership prefers to play along (on a variety of instruments), but we are gradually getting more singers involved. As I often say when introducing the group as we play out for others, "We welcome folks of any or no musical ability to come to our meeting to jam, to learn, to listen, or to perform." We regularly do have members choose to play for us rather than to do songs from our songbook, and thus become introduced to a wider variety of music.

We meet on the first Tuesday and third Wednesday of each month starting at 7 PM at the First United Methodist Church of Salem, Ohio, and welcome anyone who comes by for a meeting or to become a member. We also have a couple of potluck jams during the year, and we run a festival on the Memorial Day Weekend at Boy Scout Camp McKinley in Lisbon, Ohio.
