  Bucks County Folk Song Society
BCFSS Monthly Meetings

WHERE & WHEN:

Bucks County Folk Song Society holds its regular monthly meetings at

Wrightstown Friends Meetinghouse
PA Rte 413 (Durham Rd.)
Wrightstown, PA

The meetinghouse is on the west side of the road, just south of the intersection with Penns Park Rd. It's about 3 miles north of Newtown and 1 mile south of Rte. 232. For an interactive map, click here: Map to Meetinghouse.

Meetings are normally held on the first Sunday of every month, but occasionally switch to the second Sunday when the first is on a holiday weekend. Check the calendar to be sure.

The festivities begin around 6:30 and end promptly at 10:00pm.

MEETING FORMATS:

  1. Monthly meetings normally begin with one of two musical formats:
    • Circle (usually 20-30 performers, once around) with song/story/dance presentations relating to a predetermined theme. Upcoming themes are listed in the calendar below. Click CIRCLE PHOTO GALLERY for a peek at a past circle meeting.

    • Featured Performer or series of performers. Performers are usually BCFSS members, but occasionally we feature guests from neighboring societies. All performers volunteer their time and talents.

May 5, 2019
  Supper & Feature:
Potluck Supper
"Take 2" Concert
We start the evening early at 5:30 with our annual potluck supper. A-M bring an entree. N-Z bring a side dish or salad. This will be followed by our feature presentation, the "Take 2" concert. We did not have enough time at the Spring Concert for everyone who wanted to play, so this will be a follow-up consolation concert for those who were not in the concert last month, namely Fool & Prophets, Double D's, Spring Muse, Lynn & Tony, and Rick Anderson.

June 2, 2019
Circle:
Progressive Circle
&
Ukulele Workshop
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.
Following the Circle, uke maestro, David McCullough, will present a ukulele workshop. Those not attending the workshop will be able to snack and jam as usual.

July 7, 2019
Circle:
First Time
There's a first time for everything, and there must be plenty of songs dealing with firsts from romance to railroading to space flight. Our usual snacking and jamming sessions will follow.
