Calling all Songmakers!
The Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest and Folk Festival is happening this Sunday, May 21, 2023 !
Songmakers will have a designated area to sing and play with the purpose of showing festival attendees what we do: Make music and have fun doing it!
Songmaker’s slots to lead are 1 hour long, beginning at 9:00 AM, and ending at 4:00 PM.
(See “hootleaders” below)
It is a place and time to showcase the inclusive, inviting nature of our club. What has been suggested are: Sing-a-longs, familiar songs, inclusive songs for as many people as possible to join in singing!
Ideally, you, a Songmaker, will be able to join in the fun by singing along, playing along, or just hanging out. We will have designated hootleaders who will be open to allowing Songmakers, and passers-by (!) to sing a song, play, or join in however they wish !
We also encourage passers-by to join in and play! This is what Songmakers has always been about at this festival. It helps us build our membership and leads people to get music back in to their lives. Often, as much as they enjoy all the jamming going on, ours is the stage where they find music they can sing along with!
IF YOU HAVE CHAIRS TO SHARE FOR THE DAY PLEASE BRING THEM! WE WANT TO GIVE OUR SITE’S VISITORS A NICE PLACE TO SIT !! ALSO, IF YOU WANT TO HANG OUT IN THE SONGMAKERS’ AREA, PLEASE BRING A CHAIR FOR YOURSELF!
