Hi, Nick -
The Website of the San Francisco Folk Music Club is harder to navigate than I remembered. Sorry I didn't give you more detail The schedule of musical events is on the back pages of their Folknik newsletter: http://sffmc.org/archives/folknik_July-Aug_2017.pdf. Page 2 of the Folknik gives detailed information about the club's "Musical Meetings," which are on the second and fourth Friday of the month at Cyprian's ARC, 2097 Turk Street (at Lyon), San Francisco - 8 PM to midnight.
The chantey sing is at Hyde Street Pier on the first Saturday of the month, 8 PM. It's free, but you have to call 415-561-7171 for reservations. And it's one hell of a good chantey sing.
Oh, and I almost forgot In Harmony's Way this a cappella singaround is on the first Wednesday of the month at 8 PM, BFUU: 1606 Bonita, Berkeley 415-310-1130 - that's the Berkeley Unitarian church.
But as you can see in the Folknik, there are music and dance activities every day of the week, all over the Bay Area. Washington DC has a comparable variety of folk music activities and Boston ain't bad, but I don't know of any other U.S. cities that have as much music.
