WINDBORNE on JAN 29 heralds the return of in-person events at Fort Hunter
We are so excited to host these stellar singers for our first Fort Hunter event in about a hundred years — a Saturday afternoon Community Sing and a concert in the evening.
Windborne are delightful onstage, and singing in harmony *with* them is a real treat. They led a virtual Community Sing with us last winter, and even with everyone in little Zoom boxes, they enveloped us in the joy of shared song.
We can't wait to bring our community back to Fort Hunter Barn to enjoy this terrific group. We do hope you'll join us there on Saturday, January 29th.
At the performers' request, this is a vaccination-required event; and per our usual policy, all attendees must wear masks. Thanks for helping to keep our community healthy and singing.
COVID SAFETY POLICY
We are delighted to be transitioning back to in-person, live folk music!
For the health and safety of our guests and performers, SFMS requires all patrons to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of performance time. All patrons must wear masks regardless of vaccination status.
Additional precautions may apply to specific events.
Full details on our Covid Safety page.
Those who play and present music for a living are in difficult straits right now, along with restaurant staff, service workers, and so many others. If you are in a position to do so, please support your community in whatever ways you can.
If you play an instrument, you might consider reaching out to any musician you admire and asking about lessons via video-call. Many of them suddenly have more time and less income than usual! Ask your local music store owner if you can buy a gift certificate. See if the pub down the street is offering carry-out. Support an arts nonprofit whose work you believe in (like SFMS! among others).
Pull together with your community and do what you can. Together we'll get through this.
