Everyday Songs for Everyone Sunday, Oct 14th, 2018 from 3-4:30pm at the Public library in Albany, VT. “You don’t need to consider yourself a singer to find the usefulness of songs in everyday life. In this family-friendly workshop led by Heidi Wilson, we will learn songs for bedtime, for birthdays, for meal times, for cleaning up, for finding courage and for just having fun! This is a chance to learn some simple songs that can fill our days with homegrown music. Folks will leave the workshop with an illustrated song booklet and access to recordings to keep the songs alive back home.” Everyday Songs for Everyone more info
