Subject: RE: Song Circle Locations (retired PermaThread)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 07 Mar 06 - 09:19 AM

Re Reagan's? Yep. Public knowledge. And hard to find without. Well, for me, hard to find even with. But an excellent jam even though I keep missing Dani there. It's most enjoyable when I'm up there, because I not only get to go to Folk-Jam on Tuesdays, I get to go to Roller Jam on (some) Sundays. The daughter is a star jammer. We has fun. This is no simple coincidence - I happen to be a founder-member of the (as I've mentioned) of the Folking Roly Rounders - the organization of those who perform folk music while skating. (Thanks Ada.) We were just inline but have magnanimously agreed to accept quads as well. We were a bit snooty about them for a while but I now have to agree that butts can be kicked on quads as well as inlines.

I had the great fun at this past weekend's Orlando Folk Fest (as it were) of ECing many of the acts, singing in the jam tent AND skating round and round the lake. Some acts insisted I needn't switch to shoes while introducing them so I climbed on stage and rolled over to the mike.

I think this happily put ALL in perspective. (Keeping in mind that the very first skater was a musician who simultaneously fiddled and rolled. I offer nothing new and radical, only the well-established art form - see the Happy! for September 17, 1735.)

OK, Joe. It's all tushwah. Feel free to delete-at-will.

BTW, this update of Jam file is a valuable effort & considerable one too. Thanks, Susan.

Thanks for taking all this on Susan. Sorry to say that the Paddy Burkes traditional singing session in Boston ended in 2001. On the other hand a sea music session has started up at the MIT Museum in Cambridge, Mass on the 3rd Sunday of each month run by Lynn Noel. You can find out more be googling Lynn Noel & go to her web site.

There is also a session (I think mostly singing?) held in Gloucester, Mass at a pub called Schooners every Wednesday evening.

Also every Friday evening 4:00 - 9:30 there's a mixed session & every 3rd Saturday a sea music session 3:00 - 7:30 at the Press Room, Daniel St. Portsmouth NH. (see threads about the Press Room)

Susan,
Great that you're doing this, but please change the DC info for FSGW events. The song circle you list for "Fridays" is actually only on the first Friday of the month. More importantly, please please please don't list anyone's home number on the Internet! This is why FSGW has a website--to keep the information on rotating locations current. The monthly Open Sing is held on the first Friday of the month, and it alternates among different members' homes. The same is true for the gospel sings. Sacred Harp also meets at different locations--not just St. Peter's. For FSGW events please just list the FSGW website at www.fsgw.org. Many thanks! Kathy (who doesn't live there anymore but served on the board for 20 years and still wants to get it right.)

Kathy - I took them out, but they are posted on the FSGW website. -SOF

Dick Greenhaus and I now host a song circle in central New Jersey on Sunday afternoons. E-mail us for details susan@digitrad.org or dick@digitrad.org

after wondering thru this thread, I am wondering if I am ambitious enough to organize it with a chart by state so people can find the info they want from it. Since many of the postings are from 1997 or so, there is no guarantee that these still exist.

Sorry my spring visit to SD didn't overlap with your time there, Joe (I'll be at the April song circle), but I am very glad you were able to take Tricia and go back to Sacramento. Also glad you had a chance to check out the SD folk music scene while you were there.

The SD song circle in February was considerably bigger -- at least 30 people -- and, yes, there are some fine singers, players, and songwriters there! There's also a bluegrass venue there, at the Fuddruckers in La Mesa or El Cajon, I think, on Tuesday evenings, where the band invites folks to get up on stage and sing and/or play a song or two with them, I'm told.

Subject: Song Circles - San Diego
From: Joe Offer
Date: 23 Mar 02 - 02:48 PM

I spent the last three weeks in San Diego, California, taking care of my daughter's affairs while she was in the hospital (she's much better, thank you). San Diego is five or six hundred miles south of my home in Sacramento.
I found a fascinating record store called Folk Arts on Adams Street - no CD's or tapes, just records. It was hard to believe that major labels carried all those traditional songs in the 1960's. At the store found a copy of the newsletter of San Diego Folk Heritage, http://sdfolkheritage.org/. That led me to the San Diego Folk Song Society, http://www.windbourne.com/sdfss/. I went to the second-Saturday gathering of the Folk Song Society at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church on Lake Murray Blvd., and had a great time. I'd guess there were twenty people there, mostly well-accomplished musicians. The theme was cowboy songs, and it made for a lot of fun.
San Diego Folk Heritage sponsors concerts in San Diego and Encinitas, and also has a song circle. Seems that folk music is alive and well in San Diego.

Portland,OR Jam Session/Song Circle at Artichoke Music

Kate Power has been hosting a song circle/jam session every Saturday from 2:00 to 4:00PM at Artichoke Music, about 32nd and SE Hawthorne in Portland.

Kate encourages people to bring copies of songs if they are not in the blue 'hymnal' or are not songs everybody already knows. It's more of an instrumental jam than some song circles and more of a song circle than some instrumental jams.

Tomorrow will be our first session since August 18, due to vacations. Call Artichoke for details.

NEW PORTLAND, OR, JAM SESSION / SONG CIRCLE*

Some of us pickers have started a new jam session at a new SE Portland coffeehouse:

where: Yola's Foster Road Coffee House corner of SE 65th and Foster Road

when: Sunday afternoons from 1:00 to 3:00 PM (often going on until 4:00PM or 5:00 PM)

It doesn't have to be any particular style of music, but it is acoustic and, so far, most folks have done folk and/or CW, with a few R&B songs thrown in -- just like other Portland song circles do (for that matter, much like Rise Up Singing). So far, we've done a song-cirlce format, with people taking turns. Having copies of music for people to play and sing with is helpful but not mandatory. This session will evolve as new people join us.

Yola's is a new coffee house and they hope to do open mikes and have paid entertainment as the business gets on a firmer footing.

For more info, please send email to geniesings@hotmail.com

Found this at The Seattle Folklore Society Webpage (click)

SEATTLE SONG CIRCLE --

We're just a bunch of folks who enjoy getting together to sing -- no particular expertise required (staying in key is nice, but you won't be shot if you don't). We sing mainly folksongs (your definition thereof), but you may hear almost anything at one time or another. We have no dues or other memberships requirements, though we are associated with the Seattle Folklore Society. We meet every Sunday, from 7:30-11pm, usually in somebody's living room. On the first Sunday of the month, the living room is generally at the home of Eric and Dana D'Asaro, 9739 Lakeshore Blvd NE, and on the 3rd Sunday at the home of Dick and Karen Seymour, 5415 Greenwood Ave. NW--but it's not a bad idea to call to be sure that isn't the one month it moved. Check with the people or machines at (206) 783-6824, or (425) 747-7655 for each week's location. People drift in and out any time between the official starting and ending times.

------------

I just may have to go to one of those! Why do these things always have to be in the north end? Sigh.

Bring your cheat sheets, shanties, forebitters, tavern songs, Fo'csl songs, irish favorites, and harmonies, and get ready to cast off at 7pm next Tuesday night. When we get established we will find a more convenient night/venue.

Two of you mentioned song circles in a couple of places in Ohio...Canton and Salem, I believe. I'm new to Ohio, so could you tell me where those two places are in relation to Athens? I'd love to start or join a song circle in this area, if someone could tell me where and how.

I was assured that the Salt City Song Miners are still there. Send me a personal e-mail for a contact person.
