Let’s get together and sing.  We’re looking for people in the Ithaca area who want to get together to lead a folk song, and join in on others’ songs.  We’ll welcome traditional ballads, chanteys, & songs, as well as contemporary songs with traditional roots.  Bring your acoustic instrument or sing a capella.  We’ll take turns going around the circle to lead or request a song.  One person guides the turn-taking, encourages beginners, discourages noisy side conversations, and generally tries to keep things on track. 

 

April theme.  A new vegan cafe called Ten Forward plans to open March 25 where the Crow's Nest once was.  In tribute to Ten Forward's plant-based menu, the theme for the April 2 songswap will be Plants.  Got a song about trees or flowers or vegetables or toadstools?  Weed pulling or weed smoking?  Songs you learned in the woods?  Brambles & Blood Red Roses & Oak & Ash & Thorn & John Barleycorn?  But songs about anything at all, regardless of theme, are always welcome. 

 

Once a month-ish.  We started in September 2011.  We plan to continue about once a month.

 

Location  We sing in the TC Worker’s Center, beyond the café mezzanine, upstairs from Autumn Leaves books, 115 The Commons, downtown Ithaca.  

 

Join us!   Let’s build a stronger Ithaca-based network of folksingers.  Come sing us a song!
