“The Sing” at The Annie

Come join the fun at The Annie every Wednesday night at 7PM for two and a half hours of musical sharing.  We sit in a circle in the Art Parlor and take turns singing (or playing acoustic instruments, or both), and if others know the song, they join in.  All genres are welcome!  Prior experience singing in public is NOT necessary – it’s just about sharing our love for music, whether you are a pro, or usually only sing in the shower… It’s a very informal setting. People can also bring snacks or beverages to share. There is a $5 recommended donation per person.  We have a pretty steady group of regulars, but there is also many people who come whenever their schedule allows.  Here are some photos from past “sings”:



Michael Foley (below) is not only a musician, but also a stone carver.


Alexander Thompson brought some of his new organic variety of “Ma’s Brand” tomato marmelade:

In between his turns to sing, he was designing the label for the jars:



Ernie Pigeon, the organizer of The Sing:

When it’s not our turn for singing, some of us also do other artsy things while we listen, like knitting, drawing, or origami!  Or you can just sit and listen and admire the art show in the art parlor.

    I so enjoyed this article and photos to go along with it! This seems like an American version of the Irish seisuins, where some of the best music can be found! Would love to be able to attend one of these gatherings at “The Annie”.
