We are starting up in-person sing arounds, but Golden Link will still be hosting virtual sing-arounds on Zoom.

Virtual sing arounds actually provide some advantages over in-person sing arounds as well. We‘ve seen participation from people around the United States and around the world. Even for people who live close by, sometimes travel to our in-person sing arounds can be an impediment to attending, especially on work nights. So, due to the success of the current Zoom sing arounds, we plan to continue the virtual sing arounds in addition to the in-person sing arounds even when things return to normal. This would allow many more people to participate than we see in our in-person sing arounds.

Nov 23 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Vern Lindberg
Nov 30 (Tue): member spotlight sing around, Leader: Bill Chandler
Dec 7 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Pat Pauly

Artichoke Community Music online class led by David Ingerson, $100 for six classes, Drop-in price $20.

*** This is an online class conducted via ZOOM. The link will be provided by the teacher prior to the start date via email. ***

This course will begin with an overview of eight different song traditions in their historical and artistic contexts and with recorded examples from masters of each type. The next five sessions will delve deeper into four of the more important traditions, going backward through history (with the most accessible and easiest first). In each of those sessions we will work on learning (from a recording of a master) one or two of that type of song.

Those four types are: pub songs, traditional anglo-Irish songs, rhythmic Irish language songs, and the old arhythmic sean-nós songs. (If participants would rather not do the sean-nós songs in Irish, an English language translation could be substituted, if necessary.)
