Thread Name: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
Subject: RE: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
Well, Guest, and for those who don't know me, I have a couple of hundred Irish songs in my head that *I* would sing, but this is a group of people that have no knowledge of Irish music and I don't want to do the American tin pan alley stuff. When I do sing Danny Boy, I sing it solo - it's not really a singalong because of the range, and my voice is higher than most in a crowd. While away from the computer I thought of Jug of Punch, Rosin the Bow, The Juice of the Barley, and The Moonshiner, adding the Wild Rover (thanks Jon) should be plenty. I needed things that they would only sing easily on the Chorus.... rushing now to print.... I have only an hour to get this done.

Have fun tonight, folks, and be safe.
