Ever been to Singtime Frolics? If you have, then you are probably already registered for this year's edition, March 27-29. 

But if you haven't been, you really should consider going. The great thing about Singtime is that you can find pretty much whatever you like there.

•  Want to spend time with other folks? Easy - but there are plenty of walks, nooks and crannies where you can be by yourself for a while.

•. Want a formal class? Singtime's got 'em - but there are informal opportunities for playing with others, or asking asking someone playing something catchy, "Hey, how do you do that?", or jamming, or just practicing that lick you've been working on for six months. 

•. Do you prefer just listening? People who don't play an instrument or don't consider themselves singers still come, and have a ball.

•. Do you long for professional concert style music? Well, Beth Wood is our guest artist this year, and she'll present a mini-concert, and many of the people who come are also performers - but there's also plenty of more artisanal music too.

•. Not sure what you're looking for? Well then, come to Singtime Frolics, "a relaxing weekend in the prettiest site in Oregon", and let your spirit guide you when you get there!

Robin and Linda Williams

Oh my, what a concert this will be!

PFS is delighted to bring you Robin and Linda Williams. We'll seldom be able to offer you two people who are more beloved than this duo.

You have seen and heard them on The Grand Old Opry, or Austin City Limits, or A Prairie Home Companion (as in this clip).

And if you haven't, well, darn! Get your tickets and come! March 13. 

We don't usually say "this one may sell out", but we'll make an exception: This one, really, may sell out.

Mother Jones in Heaven

Mother Jones (1837-1930) was one of the founders of the Wobblies - the Industrial Workers of the World. She was once called the "grandmother of all agitators" but that just means that - against all odds - she was effective in organizing workers to fight for decent pay and decent treatment. How timely is that?

Folk legend Si Kahn wrote the music for a one-person play Mother Jones in Heaven performed by Vivian Nesbitt - you may have seen her as the group therapist on Breaking Bad, but this show is NOTHING like that. 

Vivian will be presenting the show March 3 and 4 at Artichoke Music. This should be a special evening. Check out this video with some excerpts...
