JulieF Songs to entertain the Irish Elders (42) RE: Songs to entertain the Irish Elders 26 Feb 06

I love being referred to as a 'querent'. Someone who asks and enquires as they would say where I come from origionally - 'Well ye've got a guid tongue in y're heid' ( even if I can't spell)

Thanks for all the help again.   A couple have come up that I will dust off and several that I should know for when the occasion needs I will learn in the longer term.

The difference in the American List is particularly interesting.   We don't have a problem doing the Parting Glass at all.   I am aware that they want to hear songs they know but they all know these songs much better than I do and some will still sing their party pieces much better than I ever could.   Its actually not a nursing home but a series of lunches for the elderly in Irish Community ( although any elderly person can come). They are organised through the year as a social gathering and there is occssional entertainment.
