    Gospel Sings are held the second Sunday of every month at various homes. Group singing starts at 4 pm and breaks for a covered dish supper at 6 pm, with more group singing after supper until 8 pm. Everyone is welcome!

    This month’s Gospel Sing has been cancelled because of coronavirus concerns. If we can figure out a way to successfully have a virtual sing, using social-connection software, we will do so, but it's been challenging to find a platform that allows people to broadcast singing simultaneously in harmony.

    In the meanwhile, if you're missing your gospel "hit," Rick Morgan and Arlene Rodenbeck have compiled a list of favorite gospel song links:

    Seeker’s Church • Takoma, DC


    Andrew Finn Magill grew up immersed in music, and by the age of 10 had begun learning fiddle from some of the finest folk musicians in the world.  By age 16, he was a two-time finalist at the All-Ireland Championships. He is also a master of the low whistles and mandolin and is equally proficient in American idioms such as old-time and bluegrass.   Finn has toured with Scotland’s Paul McKenna Band and with the popular Celtic music and dance revue Celtic Dances, and in 2016 released two acclaimed albums of Irish music, Roots and Branches.  He is currently touring with guitarist/singer/bouzouki player Alan Murray, who hails from Glasgow, Scotland.  Both Finn and Alan have performed, toured and collaborated extensively with the best contemporary names in Celtic music. 

    Magill is also known for skillful old-time fiddling and Brazilian choro traditions, but tonight’s gathering puts the emphasis on Celtic. Seeker’s Church, 276 Carroll St. NW, Takoma DC 20012, just across the street from the Takoma station on Metro’s red line. Admission: $20, FSGW Members and students: $15.

    UPDATE: In addition to the clever text about April showers (see below), pandemic precautions also are upon us. Accordingly, the April Grapevine is planned to be online via Zoom. More information will be forthcoming on how to connect.

    The showers of April are upon us, and there's nothing better to do while sheltering from the rain but to listen to a great story. The Grapevine is spoken word performance for adults and teens, celebrating the timeless art of the story, hosted this month by storyteller Renée Brachfeld.

    Our featured tellers this month are Cooper Braun, formerly of Boulder, and Suzie Afridi, formerly of Jericho.

    The show opens with up to three open-mic storytellers, followed by our featured tellers. Put your name in the hat to be one of our open-mic tellers! Traditional or true, happy or blue, tell the story that you have in you to tell within five (5) minutes(-ish).

    Donation of $15 requested to support our featured tellers.

    Gathering Sparks

    Musical Friends from Ontario

    Friday, April 17 • 6 pm

    Alexandria After Work series • Alexandria, VA

    Gathering Sparks is the graceful collision of Eve Goldberg and Jane Lewis—musical friends who blend tight harmonies, finely crafted songs, and a love of participatory singing. Their inclusive approach embraces folk, pop, blues and gospel influences tastefully played on acoustic guitar, piano, accordion, and ukulele. Whether they are belting it out a capella style, tugging on your heartstrings with a folky original, crooning a jazzy swing tune, or getting into the spirit with a gospel-inflected singalong, Gathering Sparks performances make fans out of listeners with their stellar harmonies and fine musicianship. For more about the duo, visit their website at https://gatheringsparks.com/.

    Co-sponsored by the Office of Historic Alexandria and FSGW, this is part of the Alexandria After Work concert series held in the heart of Old Town Alexandria at 6 pm on second Fridays (but postponed a week this month to avoid Good Friday). Take the free trolley that runs every 15 minutes from King Street Metro station! At Lloyd House, 220 N Washington St. 22314. (Indoors or outdoors depending on weather.) $15 suggested donation; cash bar.

    Sara Grey & Kieron Means

    Sunday, April 19 • 8 pm

    Seeker’s Church • Takoma, DC

    With her unique voice, frailing banjo style, and rhythmic stomping foot, Sara Grey brings attention to both traditional songs and songs written in the tradition. Sara is known for teaching folk from ballads to banjos, at places like the Youth Trad songs weekend, TradMad, or the John C. Campbell Folk School. She is originally from New Hampshire, but lived in Scotland and briefly in England for some 40 years. She has always been interested in the migration of songs across the Atlantic and it was as a result of a collecting trip to Scotland in 1970 that she moved to the UK, and song collecting became a lifelong obsession. Sara has returned to our shores to live in Maine. Her son Kieron Means, who now lives in upstate New York, draws his material from the deepest wellsprings of North American culture, from the old-time music of the Southern mountains to the blues — which he sings with startling conviction — and the work of latter-day songwriters steeped in the old traditions. Where so many young folk musicians of today dazzle us with their instrumental virtuosity or flatter our ears with their vocal purity, he delivers a much rarer virtue: a true passion for the music he plays, just like his mother. 

    For more about Sara or Kieron, visit https://www.saragrey.net/.

    Kim Capps

    Folk, Country, Blues & Gospel

    Kim Capps is a singer-songwriter who has written  and performed folk, country, blues, and gospel; she believes in building bridges, and creating community with her music. Kim found her true voice when she dove head first into the acoustic blues in the Barbershop jams sponsored by the Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation. Her mentors there were Michael Baytop, Eleanor Ellis, Gaye Adegbalola, and Resa Gibbs, who produced her latest EP, “Together We Rise.” She has performed in a variety of local venues and festivals over the years.  

    At this concert, Kim will be joined by guitarist and singer Eleanor Ellis, known far and wide for her powerful vocals and Piedmont guitar skills, and by Bob MacDonald on guitar, as they share a mix of  old and new tunes that touch on a variety of roots traditions, woven together by the common themes of love, struggle, community and hope.

    Steve Cormier

    Cowboy and Western

    Saturday, May 23 * 8 pm

    Steve Cormier comes to us from New Mexico, where he has been a musician, a cowboy, a film actor, and a college professor. He sings of cowboys and the other colorful characters who made up Western American history and myth. He has learned both from research and from practical experience with the ranch-hand's craft--how to throw a lariat, how to brand a calf, and how to use songs and stories to deal with the boredom that's the bulk of a cowboy's life. His songs and stories are about real people and real situations, much of the time. He'll like as not open with a set of pre-WWII cowboy work music. His sources range from Woody Guthrie to Powder River Jack Lee. He sings about farmers, cowboys, factory workers, horses, and homes on the range. Steve Cormier's concerts provide an insight into people and a way of life that is far removed from the reality of most of us. Join us in the front parlor of Kathie Mack's Craftsman bungalow. It may be only three blocks from the Takoma Metro Station on the Red Line, but expect to spend most of the night with your mind transported to the American West. 

    Suggested donation: $15. For reservations and more information, contact Kathie Mack at 301-270-5367 or kpmack2@gmail.com. (Note: Cats are in residence and there are six steps up to the front porch.)

    The last day of the storytelling season is upon us, and the best possible way to mark the occasion is by hearing some great stories. The Grapevine is spoken word performance for adults and teens, celebrating the timeless art of the story, hosted this month by storyteller Noa Baum.

    Our featured tellers this month are the hilarious Willa Brigham and a founding mother of the modern storytelling Renaissance, Barbara Freeman.

    The show opens with up to three open-mic storytellers, followed by our featured tellers. Put your name in the hat to be one of our open-mic tellers! Traditional or true, happy or blue, tell the story that you have in you to tell within five (5) minutes(-ish).

    Donation of $15 requested to support our featured tellers.

    • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
    • Peirce Mill, Rock Creek Park, 2401 Tilden St. NW, Washington, DC


    For the fifth summer, Friends of Peirce Mill and the DC Square Dance Collective are joining forces to bring you a free evening of outdoor music and dancing in Rock Creek Park! On Saturday, June 27 we’ll fill the meadows and grounds of Peirce Mill with old-time music and dance ’til the stars come out. 

    Tunes will be provided by a fantastic band of local musicians: 

    Members of the DC Square Dance Collective will call the figures. As always, no lesson, experience, partner or fancy clothes needed. Everyone is welcome!

    And a bonus: This dance is free! But donations to Friends of Peirce Mill are much appreciated. You can donate at http://www.friendsofpeircemill.org/give-now/ or if you really enjoy what they do, you can become a member at http://www.friendsofpeircemill.org/membership/

    This dance is sponsored by the Folklore Society of Greater Washington and Friends of Peirce Mill. Peirce Mill is the last remaining 19th-century gristmill in DC, one of several that used to grind the wheat, oats and corn for our city using waterpower from Rock Creek. It’s been lovingly restored and will be open late into the evening so you can see how it all went down. Back in the day, the mill was also a community hub and meeting place — and even hosted dances — though we’ll be dancing outside on the grass. See https://www.nps.gov/places/peirce-mill.htm for more info.

    Address: 2401 Tilden St. NW, Washington, DC
    Directions:
    http://www.friendsofpeircemill.org/hours-and-directions/
    Parking: across Tilden St. from the mill
