                                                We're already considering how to change this one up a bit. Thinking about "Songs We Like to                                                    Sing," which was the title of a Stanley Brothers recording a long time ago, but there will be                                                        tunes too, of course. This is more like a visit than a formal concert: no mics or set list!  Come                                                    join us for the fun!
