What does the VFSS mean to its members?
The VFSS Vision 2030 Committee is out to find the answer and asked members to submit a song that they believe represents what is important about the VFSS.
Mary Sherlock wrote: “I grew up in England but knew very little about the rich culture of traditional folk music in the UK. I think ‘Greensleeves’ was the only song I knew in my childhood. The Vancouver Folk Song Society introduced me to so much traditional music from the country of my birth. I had to travel across the wide ocean to learn a song such as ‘I Like to Rise’.
One of the things I like best about the VFSS is joyful group singing. This song has the best lead-up to a raucous group chorus!”
