The Ten Pound Fiddle Concert Series is proud to produce the Twentieth Mid-Winter Singing Festival to take place on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3, 2024 at East Lansing's University United Methodist Church (UUMC), 1120 S. Harrison, East Lansing, MI.

On Friday night, the 20th Mid-Winter Singing Festival starts with the huge Community Sing, led by veterans Rachael Davis, Joel Mabus, Robert B. Jones, and Frank Youngman.

From 12:30-2pm on Saturday, the Afternoon Community Sing will pull songs from the two books that have sustained the community singing movement: Rise Up Singing and Rise Again. A group of experienced song leaders will take turns leading their favorites. Books welcome but not necessary; lyric sheets provided.

On Saturday morning at 11 am, there will be a Children's Concert, presented by Lake Effect Family Band. Kids of all ages are encouraged come to the University United Methodist Church and sing folk songs.

All events will be held at the University United Methodist Church in East Lansing, Michigan. Click here to get your tickets!

Inspired by Pete and Toshi Seeger's highly popular Circle of Song tent at the Hudson River Clearwater Festival, this Singing Festival is designed for folk music lovers to be able to sing great songs with each other. Lyrics for the songs sung at the Friday night Community Sing will be passed out.

As the list of festival activities suggests, the songs themselves are the real stars of the Community Sing and singing workshops. Each singing event is designed to maximize audience participation. People who love folk songs are invited to bring family and friends and spend an evening, or the weekend singing great songs with song leaders who love this music.

Did your family sing while doing the dishes? Do you sing on long car trips? This festival is for you. Even if your voice isn't as good as you want it to be, that doesn't matter. This weekend is for people who love to sing. This weekend will spread a little warmth on two chilly, winter days.

See you at the Festival!
