PR – Virtual Sunday Song Circle

We all need and want more live music in our lives these days and here’s a chance to get together and share our music.
Hosted by Pat Buckna and Sherry McKnight.
Audience members and performers are both welcome.
We’ll go around the circle and each play a song and keep going… This month’s theme is BEGINNINGS. Come share a first song you learned, or a tune about the beginning of a new year, a new life, a new love (or any other song you’d like).
Anyone not familiar with setting up Zoom for live music performance can contact Pat Buckna (pbuckna@telus.net) to arrange a quick orientation.
We’d like performers to pre-register in advance so we can plan our circle, but there is no limit on how many folks can attend and best thing is the event is FREE for everyone.
