Community Sing Along with Joel Sonenshein
Every first Thursday of the month the Folklife Society, presents a community sing along with your host Joel Sonenshein. Those of you who have attended Joel's Beatles sing along at our summer festivals already know what fun is in store!
For you newcomers here's how it works:
Joel provides songbooks and accompanies the group on guitar. All you need to bring is your voice. We sing music of the Beatles, Stones, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, The Eagles, Peter, Paul & Mary, James Taylor, Carol King, and Kate Wolf, to name a few. You'll have several hundred songs by dozens of your favorite folk, rock and pop artists from which to choose. Should you have a particular song you would like to sing, just print out a few copies to share with the group.
The singalong takes place at the Arcata Community Center beginning at 7:00pm and ending around 9:30pm. Again, that's the first Thursday of the month. This is a free event. You can contact Joel at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
