The Song & Story Swap is open to the public, free of charge with donations accepted. People of all ages gather to share stories and songs that are traditional, newly written, or of personal experiences. You can tell, sing, or lead everyone in singing, or request a song or story. Listeners are welcome.
NOTE. If you would like to help sustain the Song & Story Swaps by making a donation, please contact Paul Kaplan. Our goal is to meet our modest expenses through your contributions, which allows us to turn over each event's entire collection to the featured artist.
