Song and Storytelling

In-person singing sessions have resumed on the first Friday of each month. They are held in people’s homes around the Bay Area. We have averaged a dozen people over the past few months. Start time is 8 pm and sessions usually go until 11 or midnight. Some folks still join via Zoom. For questions or to be added to the email list contact Michael Jones: mfj@ieee.org.


The songs that we sing are generally Irish in origin, but we have had from time to time sung Scots, Welsh, and Cape Breton tunes. We also have some wonderful story tellers, sean nos singers, and poets in our group.

We have put together a set of standard songs in this book which you are welcome to print out. One of our regulars, John Hopkirk, also has a songbook we use. Or feel free to bring new songs!
