The Armory Pub Sing
Join us for two monthly open pub sings
*** no cover -- no age requirement ***
DATES: Second Thursdays, 7:00 - 10:30 PM, and Fourth Tuesdays, 7:00 - 9:30 PM
LOCATION: Arts at the Armory Café, in the Somerville Armory
191 Highland Avenue, Somerville, MA (617) 718-2191 artsatthearmory.org/cafe/
Between Davis and Union Squares (#88 and #90 buses both go past the front door)
Based on a traditional English pub sing -- emphasizing songs with choruses that are easy to learn and fun to sing -- but with a bit of an American flavor. This session is open to any singer who wants to join in. We love the fine old drinking songs and know plenty of sea chanteys and chorus songs from the British Isles and New England, but anything goes as long as it's fun and lets people join in. Bring a song to share!
We love pub singing for its spontaneity, its rich harmonies, its sweep-you-along sense of communal participation, and above all its energetic joy.
We'll be in the café -- Park at the rear, but enter the building by the front door, and take the first door on the left.
Show up at or after 6:00 to join us for dinner. The cafe serves soup, sandwiches, desserts, beer, and wine.
***NOTE ON JANUARY***: In January, the 4th Tuesday pub sing transforms into a full Burns Night Supper, and the date and location may vary somewhat. See http://www.bostonsongsessions.org/burns-supper-2017 for information on this fun event.
