GUEST,Doug Saum Starting an acoustic song circle/session (24) RE: Starting an acoustic song circle/session 08 Feb 11

Here's how the Reno Song Circle started: A representative from the already existant Sacramento Song Circle (Bob Fitch - personal photographer for Martin L King, Jr., among his other credits)suggested the idea of a monthly song circle in Reno. We decided not to advertize publicly, but rather to invite our musical friends. Since several of these folks were involved in the Sierra Club, Contra Dance society, and other environmental organizations there was already an organization of friends. Over time musical friends invited other friends. We chose not to have the event in public places, but rather in private homes. This approach may require a sufficiently large community population in order to work. Over the years I estimate that 500-1,000 different people have attended.
