Sunday Song Circle – Betrayal

betrayalssLast month it was all about love. Next month we’re so close to the Ides of March, we decided our theme is BETRAYAL! There must be a million songs that have been written on the topic and we’re hoping you’ll come and share some of your best ones with us. We’re an easy-going group of singers, players, and folks who just want to come out and listen and we’d love to see you on March 13th at the Cranberry Hall at 2:00pm. Murder-ballads, my-baby-done-me-wrong songs, I’m-So-Lonesome-Since-My-Baby-Said-Goodbye songs, or any other kind of tune that strikes your fancy will be just fine. If you haven’t joined us before, you’re invited and we’ll be glad to have you.

Admission by donation ($5 or what you can afford)
