Community Open House
Saturday, November 21, 2009, 12:00 pm an afternoon of workshops and performances free
November 21 12:00 pm

Join us for our second Community Open House! Music fills the Freight from ceiling to roof as we throw open our doors from noon to 4:00 P.M.. Dancing in the aisles, singing on the stairs, and fiddling in the lobby are sure to ensue as we invite the East Bay music-making community (including you!) to meet for an afternoon's extravaganza of song circles, sampler workshops, student and teacher showcase performances, bluegrass acoustic blues jams, Irish traditional sessions, shape note sings, and much more.
