March 3, 2024
Featured Performer:
Chris Adams
Chris Adams has graced our BCFSS stage in the past and we were glad he did! Paired with our Phyllis Purves-Smith when she was featured, we were awed by this duo of gifted student and superb classical guitarist and teacher. Chris has also performed with Windswept and added fabulous guitar work to their distinctive Celtic style. Now we get to hear the full array of his musical palette. This will be a hybrid Zoom meeting, and we will continue hybrid zoom meetings for the foreseeable future. As always, the link for Zoom participation can be found on the BCFSS member's web page. If you're not a member, contact us for a complimentary guest link.

April 7, 2024
Hybrid Zoom Circle:
Don't
This does not mean don't sing. We still expect to hear from you. Maybe sing about something forbidden. Or maybe a song persuade some to refrain from something, like leaving or speaking. This will be a hybrid Zoom meeting, and we will continue hybrid zoom meetings for the foreseeable future. As always, the link for Zoom participation can be found on the BCFSS member's web page. If you're not a member, contact us for a complimentary guest link.

May 5, 2024
Potluck Supper
followed by
Hybrid Zoom Circle:
Progressive Them
After the potluck supper, here we go again with that totally demented progressive theme circle. That doesn't mean the songs have to relate to liberal politics. The theme varies in the course of the circle as each song has to be related in some (often obscure) way to the previous one. This will be a hybrid Zoom meeting, and we will continue hybrid zoom meetings for the foreseeable future. As always, the link for Zoom participation can be found on the BCFSS member's web page. If you're not a member, contact us for a complimentary guest link.

June 2, 2024
Hybrid Zoom Circle:
Theme TBA
Theme for this meeting will be announced shortly. This will be a hybrid Zoom meeting, and we will continue hybrid zoom meetings for the foreseeable future. As always, the link for Zoom participation can be found on the BCFSS member's web page. If you're not a member, contact us for a complimentary guest link.
