cetmst Ballad Tom Pierce (28) RE: Ballad Tom Pierce 19 Feb 12


I like to use Tam Pierce as a crowd warmer. Designate one of the members of the group as each of the characters in the chorus, Bill Brewer, Jan Strewer, Peter Gurney, Peter Davy, Dan'l Whidden, Harry Hawk. Sing the verse and point to each character who shouts out his name in sequence and bring the whole crowd in on "Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all". To get the ladies involved make Jan Strewer female and change Dan'l to Liza. As added fun a few years ago up here in New Hampshire the Speaker of the state's House of Representatives was Tom Cobleigh.
