farmer worksong singalong – saturday!

Leave a comment


Join Max Godfrey and Friends for a raucous, foot-stomping evening of worksongs, food, and infectious laughter. We will learn many songs traditionally sung by prisoners and field workers as a means of enduring the hardships of forced labor, but which have been rediscovered by farmers as tools for making their work more enjoyable. With simple,call-and-response structures, these songs can be learned quickly and require no vocal “skill” whatsoever. We will start with the simplest songs and share some more involved worksongs as our lungs warm up. We will also share many songs from around the world that American farmers have adapted for use in the fields. Even if you’re not a farmer you’re bound to remember some of these songs and enjoy sharing them with friends. This singalong will include a meal prepared by Max and Friends, but singing will continue throughout the evening.
