Raise your voice and join singer/guitarist Terre Roche as the sun sets over the Hudson River for enchanted evenings of folk songs, rounds, and chants. Novice and experienced singers of all ages are welcome. Bring a favorite song. SUNSET SINGING CIRCLES are a relaxing way to end the busy week and a wonderful opportunity for people to get together and sing in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. As Terre says, "Sunset Singing Circles are one of my very favorite events!" New Yorkers, sitting in the grass, watching the sun go down over the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty, singing This Land is Your Land and other favorites -- or just listening. Soulful, fun and surprising -- people tell me what a great time they have unwinding from the work week." Each season ? 2013 is the twelfth ? BPCPC produces a songbook, now grown to include nearly 100 songs that people know or are easy to learn. The songbook contains audience favorites and requests along with new tunes from Roche's annual review of classic folk and pop songs. Terre Roche has played guitar since the age of eleven, and with her two sisters, Maggie and Suzzy, produced 12 albums as The Roches, before they decided to pursue separate projects. Terre's first solo album, The Sound of a Tree Falling, was described by Sing Out! as "?luminous?enchantingly hypnotic?playing [that] is both complex and foundational, setting up solid but delicate rhythmic structures for each song on which her vocals can soar."
