The next sing will take place on Sunday, September 14, from 2 pm to 4:30 pm at Nelson Congregational Church.  NO experience is necessary.  If you think this sounds interesting, we’d love to have you come listen and give it a try.  We will have several extra books to lend for the session.  If you’ve sung shape-note songs in the past and are ready for more singing close to home, we’re eager to meet you and have you join us, too.  If you have any questions, please email ecsandberg@gmail.com.
