In Harmony’s Way Song Session
Riggy Rackin and Jim Partridge
Music Two 5:00-6:30
In Harmony's Way started with a group of Bay Area folk musicians who love to sing chorus songs. It has grown into monthly singing sessions and festival workshops like this one! Come sing chorus songs, drinking songs, gospel songs, sea shanties, camp songs, silly songs, sad songs, or anything else with a chorus or refrain so people can sing along. The workshop leaders won't be teaching, lecturing, or doing anything with much structure, except going in a circle so as many people as possible can take a turn. Attendees are going to sit around and sing for a glorious hour of harmony, laughter, chorus songs, and good company. Each person can lead a song, request a song, or just sing along.
Riggy Rackin has been singing and squeezing sweetness out of a little box for nearly 50 years.
Jim Partridge has been one of the regular suspects committing folk music in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene for many years now. He can be found at the Hyde St. Pier singing sea songs and shanties, and trolling the docks of San Francisco in search of his other bandmates, The Roving Tars, who by their very nature, are roving. He has also been seen recently in the company of the men of Brass Farthing, singing Victorian Music Hall songs. Approach him with extreme caution, as he has been known to harmonize with complete strangers with no provocation whatsoever.
