    Thanks for your response Dan. I saw you folks at the ADK Expo and got inspired. I think I’ll grease up the old six string and give it a try.

    Hi Dan – the singarounds are essentially acoustic. They tend to draw a good crowd so room for an amp would be very limited, and access to a power outlet might be iffy too. It could work if you have a small amp (perhaps one that could fit under your chair) and kept the volume down very low so that it’s no louder than an acoustic bass would be.

    Howdy folks,
    I was wondering about the singarounds. Are they strictly acoustic or do you allow electric bass? I wish I had an upright, but they don’t fit in my house.

    I get your newsletter and I appreciate it. We get your members and appreciate them too! At one time Golden Link and Oswego Music Hall had a cooperative relationship— a member of one was a member of the other. That is no longer the case but I believe, nevertheless, that one hand washes the other and that our mutual support of live music underlies our support for one another’s venues. Janice Hansen knows this to be true when on occasion presenters throughout CNY have occasion to gather and are able to share challenges and successes. It is a labor of love. I am delighted that you booked Durham County Poets as we did and inspired that you brought Peter Yarrow to your stage. After our success with Joan & Joni, we realize how drawn our constituency is to the legends of folk. So bravo to you; may you continue to mine gold. Our newsletter is not as well developed as yours, but we would be happy to send it to any on request. (Perhaps through our website is best,
    Happy Spring!

    I thank you for presenting Peter Yarrow. I was an amazing concert. Thank you, Janice Hansen, Concert Chair, for all that you do! I hope I can sing and play guitar as Peter when I grow up.

    I love the website. Looks great! However, please continue to (snail) mail a hard copy newsletter to me. Some habits die hard… like reading beloved newsletters that stack up on my kitchen counter. Thanks
