    The Folk Music Society of Huntington’s monthly Folk Jam/Song Circle/Sing-Along affords musicians and singers of all experience levels an opportunity to play, sing and hone their performance skills. Extending from 1-4 p.m. one Sunday a month at the South Huntington Public Library (145 Pidgeon Hill Road, Huntington Station), the Folk Jams are completely acoustic, unplugged events attended primarily by amateur musicians and those who love to sing, although visitors who just want to listen are also welcome. Song selections range across the broad folk milieu, but are often taken from the "Rise Up Singing" songbook. Admission is free and open to the public. Participants are asked to bring their voices, acoustic instruments, and a snack/non-alcoholic beverage to share.
