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
Dec 14 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Janice Hanson
Dec 21 (Tue): Theme: Holiday Songs, Leader: Sandra Condry
Dec 28 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Nikki Roosa

Led by Maggie Lind (clawhammer banjo), Patrick Lind (guitar), and Sophie Enloe (fiddle). Previous experience on your instrument is required. If you are playing in the fiddle or banjo sections, you should be fairly comfortable picking out melody notes by ear but we are working on developing this skill as well. Guitarists should be familiar with the following open position chords: A, C, D, E, F, G and able to play the bass note/after strum or “boom chuck” technique.

Cost for the 8 week session is sliding scale $160 – $125 per student. If you choose to skip the group zoom lessons you may have access to the online portion of the fall session for $80. Please email Maggie to register.

Pay what you can afford and email maggiebanjo (at) gmail.com if you have financial need. We offer scholarships and we want our classes to be accessible to all. We are happy for you to share one registration fee per household during this time, especially if you are financially impacted by the pandemic. If you would like to contribute a little extra money to support students that can’t pay full price, please let us know or simply add it to your registration fee. Thank you!

?The Black Feathers, made up of Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler, are two such talents. They first became aware of the magic between them while collaborating on several musical projects, becoming The Black Feathers and life partners in 2012, $20 suggested donation. All proceeds go to musicians. Space is limited for this INDOOR concert (doors open at 6:30).
