Thread Name: Chorus songs for ballad singers
Subject: RE: Chorus songs for ballad singers
Well, there's ballads, and then there's ballads. Are you looking for trad ballads? Recently composed? Do you lean towards Irish? (Or English, Scots or American?)

That said, I've had a lot of luck getting audiences to join in on Golden Vanity (Lowlands), Cruel Sister, Hungry Child, Prickle-Holley Bush, Pleasant and Delightful . . .

There's a lot of stuff out there with choruses or repeated last lines. A place to start browsing might be Rise Up Singing. Just don't take what's written there as gospel -- I hate how sing-arounds can devolve into people singing songs out of that book that they don't know or half-remember.
