*Laura* Chorus songs for ballad singers (54* d) RE: Chorus songs for ballad singers 27 Nov 11

Does it depends where you are - or do you just NEVER want people joining in unless you've invited them?

For me one of the best and most beautiful things about folk clubs and singarounds is the feeling of everyone singing together - we may take it for granted because we are used to it but that doesn't actually happen much.

We had a big party last year for a family member's birthday - and there was a big mixture of folky and non-folky friends there. Towards the end of the evening we ended up having a bit of a singaround, and everyone was joining in with chorus's and refrains (or not, if the songs didn't have them) - as is normal in all the folk clubs I ever go to - and the response from the 'non-folky' sector was pretty amazing. For WEEKS they were all going on about what an amazing experience it had been and how they'd never seen or been to anything like that before - where people were just all singing together in a room.

I love that - hence wanting to learn more songs that it's easier for people to join in with!!
