Song Circles


Monthly Song Circle to be held at new location on a first Tuesday evenings starting at 7PM:

   At the Midtown Bar & Grill located at 415 W. Gray St, Houston, TX
   77019.  The room provided is on the second floor.


 Meetings consist of a "song circle", allowing each attendee an opportunity for a musical performance, share a song, tall tale, announcement, or other item which he or she may wish to share with the group.   Non-performers are just as welcome as performers. After all, musicians, singers, storytellers, all need an audience.
