DC Area Folk SOJO (Sing Out Jam Out)
Get together with like-minded lovers of folk music and singing! We meet twice a month to sing and play folk songs, most taken from the Rise Up Singing book. Members also bring lyrics to their favorite songs and hand out copies.
If you're familiar with folk music and are not shy about singing, or you play an acoustic instrument, come on down!
We meet the first and third Saturdays of the month from 2:00 to 5:00 pm at an indoor location in Crystal City (Arlington), VA, close to metro. Please be sure to bring a copy of Rise Up Singing, or you can buy one from one of the organizers.
We go around the circle and take turns choosing a song for the group to sing together. We sing well known traditional songs (and not so well known songs that participants want to teach us), as well as those by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Peter, Paul & Mary, John Denver, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Tom Paxton, Donovan, and many more. Perhaps even a little Beatles. Maybe even some Irish or British folk popularized by the likes of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, the Irish Weavers, etc.
