Subject: Winfield - are their song circles?

Hi,

I am going to the Walnut Valley festival in Winfield Kansas in a couple of weeks and I was wondering about singing. Are there any song circles, or do they spontaneously form at certain camps. I am not interested in the type of song circles where everyone sings from written music i.e."sing-out circles", but rather the type where people trade songs they know and love and maybe even sing without guitars :)

Any info would be much appreciated.

Probably...if not, start one in your campsite.

not 'exactly' song circles as you seem to mean, and playing instruments is the big deal, though, of course, there is singing too.....There is LOTS of "campground pickin"...in fact, there are many folks who never go in to see the stage shows, but just go there to play with friends they may only see once a year. You can wander around the campground almost any hour of the day or night and find music happening, and IF you look like someone who can play, you may be invited to join in.

But take care...some of these folks are very serious about their music and it is best to learn the rules gradually. If you play an instrument, and just barge into the wrong group, you'll learn quickly.

Most of the folks are quite friendly, but most of them know each other...or some smaller group...This has been going since 1970 or so,(I attended the first 10) and it is a good idea to do 'more' listening than joining, unless you know you are GOOD. If you are, you be playing with someone quickly!

If, as it sounds like, you are primarily a singer, then just enjoy...and go hear the wonderful acts on stage, and soak up the ambiance until you get an idea what works.

Thanks very much for taking the time to write.
I have heard a lot about this festival over the years and I am looking forward to the tunes. It is just that everyone I know that goes is a instrumentalist and not a singer, so they had no idea if people form song circles as well. I thought this might be a good place to inquire.

It should be a blast with, or without songs, and I am really looking forward to it.

All the best,
