Song Circle

Song Circle participantsHere’s your chance to sing & play well-known pop and folk songs of the 60s & 70’s (along with a few traditional folk songs). About 15 people attend the song circle and we have a great time! If you like to sing and/or play an acoustic instrument, please join us!

This dynamic group meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:00pm.

All levels of singers welcome! We also welcome guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, bass, dulcimer, flute, harmonica players, etc.

Someone starts by picking a song from our songbook of popular pop/folk/country/camp songs (see song list below). When your turn comes, you may lead the song, request that someone else lead the song you’ve picked, or pass. We sing the song together, and then move to the next person in the circle and repeat! We request that instrument players be mindful of drowning out voices with loud instruments. When the harmonies ring, it’s truly magical.

We provide copies of the songbook (with guitar chords for instrument players) at the song circle, but you can print your own (or store it on your electronic device). Email catyw (at) wccls (dot) org for the songbook.

Bring your friends, a beverage (non-alcoholic) in a closed container & your enthusiasm! Acoustic instrument players should bring a portable music stand.

You are welcome to bring a song that you then choose when it’s your turn. The song should be well-known & singable (songs with choruses preferred). Bring 15 copies with the words & guitar chords. Please fit the entire song on one page (as it is difficult for the instrument players to stop playing to turn the sheet over). Recommend using Times New Roman font with a minimum of 12 font size. When the chords are repeated you can leave them off after the first set. Highlight the chorus in bold. Need the words or guitar chords? Try these websites:
