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.

February 6, 2022
Circle:
Under the Covers
This time of year, curling up under a pile of warm blankets can be quite appealing, but this theme does not have to involve bedroom activities (like dreaming, for example). It could involve anything taking place under cover of darkness, or any other kind of covering. Use your imagination. At this time were are still conducting our circle meetings virtually on Zoom. Members can get the Zoom link on our Members Website. Non-member guests are welcome and should contact us for the Zoom link. Tips on performing on Zoom can be found on our new Zoom Webpage.

March 6, 2022
Circle:
Land/Farming

Let's get down to earth with songs about the land and its bounty. It can involve farming or natural wonders of the land. Will someone sing "This Land is Your Land"? Best guess is that everyone will think it's too obvious, and no one will pick it. Maybe we can get back to meeting in person by then, but don't count on it. Stay tuned for further updates.
