Events that missed the July/August Flyer

We did not receive very many calendar listings for the summer (July/August) issue of the SFS Flyer!  We will attempt to add additional events in occasional “late
breaking news” posts here; check for updates. The next deadline is August 15, for the September issue; please send us your events.
There seems to be a (hopefully, temporary) issue with the online calendar, so please email your events to

August 27—Fortnight of Doom

When we said waaaayyy back in June that we would have a great guest, we were right. August 27, 5-6:30pm on the Whateverly Brothers’ You Tube and Facebook feeds, we happily welcome KAT EGGLESTON back for her annual visit with Chris and Dan.  To us, she is a goddess of guitar, a model of vocal charisma, and a grippingly evocative songwright.
