Song Circle

Song Circle

Second Tuesday of each month, 7:00 - 9:00 PM at the Two Way Street Coffee House.

Our BYOS (“Bring Your Own Song”) song circle is a monthly event where George Mattson hosts a small gathering of folks who want to try out their songs, unplugged, in a song circle setting. It’s an opportunity for each person to “solo” with original compositions or covers of songs written by others. As one participant said, “You can play a song at home all you want, but it’s nice to come out and share it.” It’s a low-stress way to gain experience for those who don’t normally perform for others.

Sing-Around Leader, George Mattson

George Mattson came up with the idea for a "bring your own song" event in 2011 as a way for members to perform songs of their choice in a small group setting. George also hosts our regular Saturday afternoon sing-arounds, performs with the George Mattson Trio, and previously taught guitar at the Old Town School of Folk Music.
