Other BFMS Events and Activities
Like our other song swap at the Four Hour Day Lutherie, this is not an open mic. It's a place for folks to come together and share songs, community, and keep the live singing tradition thriving. We take turns around the circle. There is NO requirement to sing. If you are shy about leading a song, don’t fret…we sing many songs with choruses and your voice will blend in with everyone else’s. Please come prepared with a few songs
