Herga at The Castle is a folk and acoustic music evening, with roots going back to 1963. We meet on Monday nights at The Castle – a Fuller’s public house atop old Harrow on the Hill with its panoramic views across London.

The live club remains closed due to the Corona Virus epidemic for the forseeable future.

However, we are now running weekly singarounds using Zoom, and approximately once a month are featuring a booked guest.

The Waterfront Blues Festival is downtown Portland’s largest and longest-running music festival and one of the most renowned celebrations of the blues in the world. 2022 marks the 35th anniversary of the festival and a jubilant return to downtown Portland’s Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

New this year! All 4-Day passes will be offered at three ticket price tiers - Early Bird, Tier 1 and Tier 2 - so buy early for the best blues for your buck.

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

We open up a "room" on Zoom at 6 pm Pacific Time every Saturday evening. We start singing at 6:30 pm and we keep it going until the last person leaves. Feel free to come in anytime, and stay as long as you like. We run it kind of like a physical song circle. Everyone who wants to can sing once, and then we’ll do another round, and just keep going around as long as you like. Of course, it is totally fine to just listen and some people do. For more information, go to the heading ‘Song Circles‘ on this drop down menu.
