She encourages musicians to share their performance talents in Song Posse, a musical improv and open mic group that has been in operation for many years in Angels Camp under different names and at different locations. Song Posse is housed at Manzanita Arts Emporium every 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Saturdays, and the first Saturday of every month, the group meets in San Andreas at the Creative Community Center. They begin at 6 pm and share their music and written word performances until 8:30 pm. The public is invited to come in and listen, share in musicianship, learn from experienced musicians and play some of their own music, regardless of the level.
