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.

  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.

UPCOMING MEETING CALENDAR:

Here's what on the meeting calendar for the coming months:


PREVIOUS
 DATES
To give you a better picture of our activities, we list the musical features of our past meetings on a separate page. Click HERE.

December 5, 2021
Circle:
Standing/Last Stand
First of all, "Stand By Me" comes to mind. Or a courtroom drama where someone takes the stand. Or maybe someone will dredge up "Please Mr. Custer". Lots of other songs involve standing somewhere. Once again we will be gathering only on Zoom, using the link on the Members' page. If you're not a  member and wish to visit, please contact us for a link.

January 2, 2022
Circle:
Sitting
Since we just did "Standing", it follows that sitting should be next. It's been said that where you stand depends on where you sit, but that might be hard to turn into a song. You could be sitting on the dock of the bay or on top of the world. Lots of possibilities. But we will have to sit and wait to see whether we can again gather at the meetinghouse for a hybrid circle or stay strictly on Zoom.

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. It's still too soon to know whether we can again gather at the meetinghouse for a hybrid circle or stay strictly on Zoom.

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. We hope by then we can again gather at the meetinghouse for a hybrid circle or stay strictly on Zoom. but we'll have to wait and see.
