How about a festival where the folks who attend do all of the singing!
The Mid-Winter Singing Festival will kick off this Jan 31-Feb 1, 2003 in East Lansing, MI
Two huge evening concerts where four well-known folk musicians LEAD the audience in 16 well-known songs (different selections each night) General Admission tickets $12/10/8.
Twelve FREE workshops on Saturday afternoon. Again, the attendees sing WITH the songleaders. All afternoon.
Sponsored by the 30 -yr. old, healthy Ten Pound Fiddle Coffeehouse, The City of East Lansing, and Double Play Sports.
ALL details are at www.singingfestival.com
Are you interested in promoting/running a festival like this in your neck of the woods? Contact me and I can help with tickets/arrangements...to visit this one.
Folks love to sing. In our society, folks don't get to sing enough. Why not a festival where the songs are the stars of the shows AND everyone makes up the gorgeous sound...all weekend long.
Thanks for the opportunity to help spread the word.
Sally Potter, Mid-Winter Folk Festival Director
