Sing Along with Chris and Anita

Saturday, December 8 

Doors: 7:30 Music: 8PM

Chris says:

The general idea we have in mind is simply to make music together, because that’s just plain fun.  This leads to a few very general guidelines:

– We’ll lean more towards songs than instrumentals, but by all means bring that dulcimer and play some tunes if you want!

– Sing-along songs are most encouraged, although of course we want to hear you share your talents!

– We wouldn’t want to limit our genres, but if the words are printed in Rise Up Singing, everyone will appreciate it!

– As much as possible, we’d like to give everyone a chance to choose a song to two — shy persons will be supported gently and lovingly!

Oh, and BYOB. Food offerings are not necessary, but of course we won’t bar the door if you try to bring something.
