Sing for Peace, Sing for Justice!

The Peace & Justice Center of Eastern Maine holds monthly sing-a-long/play-a-long music nights to bring together P&J members, local musicians, and any others who want to play, join in, or just listen.

Next sing-a-long, Wednesday, February 17,  from 5:30 to 7:00pm at the Peace & Justice Center at 96 Harlow St., Suite 100, in Bangor.


All participants are encouraged to bring songs to share. Songs should relate in some way, even loosely, to themes of peace, justice, and/or a sustainable environment. We will use a circle/jam format with each person in turn choosing to play/sing a song, suggest a song for the group to sing, or pass the baton to the next person.
Instruments (acoustic) are welcome, and all are welcome to sing and/or play along. Songs can be popular ones that many people know or more obscure ones that we can learn. Those choosing more obscure songs are encouraged to bring song sheets so others can join in.

Bring yourself, your voice, your instruments, and your passion and let’s raise the roof!
