Song Circles

Remember those nights at camp when you were a kid? Song Circles are kind of like gathering around the campfire and sharing music, but (usually) without the fire. PFS sponsors a couple of different types of song circles - some weekly and some monthly. Every person in the circle has an opportunity to lead, suggest or request at least one song.

Some of the homes where song circles are held are not child-safe. Check with the host to see if it's appropriate to bring small children.

The Second Saturday Song Circle is hosted by a different household each month, from about 7:30 PM to midnight. Potluck dinners (if any) usually begin at 6:00 PM. (But each host sets the times; see below.) Come to sing or to listen.
