A Place for Folk will embark on its 6th season this September with a well-known band Everest Rising. We are delighted that they have agreed to open our 2017-2018 season of concerts at UUSS. Please join us in the Great Hall on September 16th at 7:30pm (doors open at 7:00pm.)
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Everest Rising, several of the musicians are members of our congregation and often give their music gifts on Sunday mornings. The band as a whole is a rich, dynamic and a local favorite that has graced the stage of places like the legendary Café Lena and Howlin’ at the Moon. We will be celebrating the recently released second album entitled “Chasing Ghosts” as well as other favorites.
A Place For Folk is a concert series associated with this congregation and supports efforts to offer a warm, inviting place to listen to acoustic music (and not just your standard old folk type but some dynamic young talent) and reach out to our local community. Won’t you join us and bring a friend? This is a lovely way to bring people into our fold and let them discover who we are and what we do in this community.
Our complete schedule for the coming season is at http://aplaceforfolk.org
We are always looking for volunteers to help us with the production of the show. The commitment is only a couple nights a year and allows volunteers to enjoy a free night of music. Please see Lara Turney if you might like to help or email her at email@example.com. Jobs include being a greeter at the door, selling tickets, serving and eating dinner with our artists, helping the artists sell their merchandise at the “merch” table, serving goodies at intermission, loading in the musicians, supplying the green room with some goodies for the musicians, etc.
