Community sing-alongs return to Ridgefield Library Jan. 6

With Deborah Katchko-Gray on guitar and leading the vocals, and Gigi Van Dyke on piano, about 20 people who showed up at the Ridgefield Library had all the musical leadership they needed for a room-rocking community sing-along on Sunday, Dec. 16. Folks joined voices on songs ranging from The Beatles to Billy Joel to standards like Take Me Out to the Ballgame and Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land. Katchko-Gray, the cantor of Congregation Shir Shalom, has been organizing community sing-alongs for a couple of years now. The next one is Jan. 6 from 3:30 to 5 at the library. Songbooks with the words are provided, guitars and other instruments are welcome. — Macklin Reid photo
