Song Circles


Monthly Song Circle to be held at new location on a Tuesday evening:

Our song circles will be held at the  JP Hops House, on the first Tuesday,
October 5,The JP Hops House
is located at 2317 Hwy 6, Houston, TX 77082.
The phone number is 281.496.0623


 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.
