Want a simple, safe, online Taste of Folk College?






Here is your opportunity! While an online event won't give us what we get by seeing each other live, this will still be a fun day. Join Simple Gifts and friends for workshops, open mic, concert, and jamming.


DATE: Saturday, January 29, 2022


TIME: 5pm to 9pm, but drop in anytime



Zoom Link Here, Zoom meeting id: 896 8773 2965, Zoom Passcode music


COST: FREE! (with donations gratefully accepted)


Taste of Folk College is:

• a fun virtual party with lots of jamming

• an opportunity for people who haven't been to Folk College and Greenwood Furnace Folk Gathering to see what it's about in a free 1-day event

• a reunion for Folk College and Greenwood Furnace Folk Gathering attendees

• a fantastic event for people who play an instrument, people who wish they played an instrument, and people who just like to listen




5 - 6 pm EDT

Beginners' Jam

Easy tunes played slowly, with lots of "how to" advice.


6 - 7 pm

Open Mic

Your chance to sing a song, play a tune, read a poem, tell a joke, show your creativity! Or come listen and be inspired by others.


7:45 - 8 pm

Simple Gifts Concert

This will be a fun relaxed concert with Simple Gifts. We'll be debuting a medley of Mexican tunes we've been working on, plus we'll include Finnish, Scottish, Welsh, Yiddish, American and more, and of course our goofy humor.


8 - 9 pm

More Jamming

Play along with Simple Gifts, using common tunes and songs. If you'd like to suggest a song, have the lyrics ready to share.
