Tickets: $5 at the door
As is our tradition, on every month with five Tuesdays, we hold a Member’s Showcase. Thus, on January 31st, instead of the usual sing-around, Golden Link is having a Member's Showcase concert! We have a diverse slate of talented members performing for your entertainment. Admission is just $5 at the door, and refreshments will be available.

As Golden Link's president for several years, Vern is well known in the Golden Link community and can nearly always be found at sing-arounds and events, bringing people together in song. He is currently a member of the group JAVA, which can be seen performing in local coffee houses and taverns.
"I have been playing music since my early college years, learning songs of Dylan, Lightfoot, Ian and Sylvia, the Beatles and traditional songs. I joined the Golden Link Folk Singing Society in 1982, and it has helped me to improve my guitar and vocal skills, as well as giving me years of enjoyment. In the past few years I have begun songwriting, and will share a couple of those at the concert."

Val Fowler--our new president--joined Golden Link in 1992. He began playing guitar in 1968, and was nurtured in the Simon & Garfunkel, Beatles, James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, etc. era. His college mentors were all fingerstyle players, for which he is grateful. Val served as GL President in 1995/1996, has been a singaround regular and occasional leader. His latest "and now for something comPLETELY different" experience is joining a songwriting group.
