Sadly, we are forced to cancel our Tuesday Folk Club open mics until further notice. We must follow the guidance of government authorities and practice physical distancing, until restaurants are able to reopen and groups of people can socialize again. This is a difficult time, but we all must do what is right to minimize the impact of the novel coronavirus on mankind (and it’s sobering to put it that way).
An essential need for the Folk Club is sharing our love of music, and we feel disoriented that we are not able to do that in the company of our friends at the Amphora every week. Therefore, until the human world is on an even keel again, the Folk Club plans to hold a virtual open mic every Tuesday night from 7:30 to 10:00 PM ET.
To stream our online open mic on YouTube Live, go to our calendar page, click the Virtual Open Mic entry in the Calendar of Events, and then click on the YouTube link.
We all look forward to the day when we can meet together again at the Amphora Diner Deluxe in Herndon on Tuesday nights. What a celebration that will be!

Many of you know that Bill Farrar's father, Wallace, passed away peacefully on Wednesday. I know most of you will want to know the details of his viewing and services. Details can be found here:
For those who may be wondering because of today's weather, the Folk Club will meet tonight at the Amphora. Depending on attendance, it may be an unplugged night, with no sound system. Please use your best judgment, and drive carefully if you decide to venture out and join us.
I am intereste in hiring a folk guitar musician and singer to sing the Train Song with me to propose to my life partner and girlfriend of 20 years. My idea is to have you be at a restaurant that I take her for dinner. You play a couple of songs, then I get up and join you in singing to her the Train Song Marry Me (modified slightly). I am thinking we should practice a 1-2 times and then select a good location and date. Price is negotiable. Let's PM about price. I am in Annandale Area but I can travel to Reston/Herndon if needed. If you already have a performance scheduled, and want to roll this into that date, let me know. I am not in a big hurry, but I would like to have this completed by the end of January, no earlier than Jan 2.
