McKinley Childrens’ Song Circle begins its third year of fun and free family gatherings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 Every Sunday this year the Shadechasers have been singing folk songs for the pleasure of their friends and neighbors in East Sacramento.
We meet at the Clunie Clubhouse, next to the McKinley Library, in the auditorium. We will continue into the New Year. We had been meeting at 3 PM. But the new time is 4 PM to 5:30. All ages are welcome.

We were initially funded by the First Five Commission of Sacramento for the first 12 months. We got a wonderful singing audience which just keeps coming. We have added children over the age of five. We have added folk and step dancing along with rhythm. Our songs tend to be from Pete Seeger, Malvina Reynolds, Woody Guthrie and other singers like Raffi. we sing them slowly at first, so everybody can get on board

The next session is January 3, where we will be singing requests from our songbook which we bring copies of to share with you.
If you have songs to share with us, please call Robin Aurelius at 916-531-4110.  Future sessions will be each first Sunday of the month, January through June at 4 PM till 5:30 PM.  We usually end up with requests from our songbook, and call it a hootenanny.

The other singers in the group picture above in the slideshow, are Cynthia Llano, Ward Tabor, Alice O Laughlin, Kyle.Poland, Steve Swindel, Mary Lynne McGrath, Ron McCorduck,  David Contreras, and Jamie Barnes
