A free Folk Jam & Sing-Along sponsored by the Folk Music Society of Huntington (www.fmshny.org) will take place on Sunday, Sept. 12, from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m., at the Huntington Public Library, 338 Main Street (Route 25A) in Huntington Village. This is a monthly gathering for musicians and singers of all experience levels, during which everyone joins in on songs primarily from the book “Rise Up Singing“.  It affords an opportunity to play, sing and hone your skills with others.

This folk jam is acoustic (unplugged— no amplifiers). Bring your instruments, voices, the “Rise Up Singing” songbook (if you have it), and a snack/non-alcoholic beverage to share.
