Community singalongs

Coming up from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. the same afternoon (Saturday, Dec. 16) is a community carol singalong and fiddle jam session with Steve Mason and friends.

“Players and singers will sit in a big circle, or concentric circles, facing in, so that we can play to each other,” according to the library’s event page. “We’ll provide the song books, you can bring your jingle bells!”

A winter holiday singalong for kiddos is set for 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday, Dec. 18. Kids ages 0-11 are invited to “sing, move, and play with Silver of Meadowlark Music Together.”
