Perhaps on one of the songs you do you can ask if there are any requests, or bring along a list of the cover songs you know and pass them out to everyone before singaround starts.

I go to singarounds where someone (when asked) if the singer knows any John Denver songs or Dylan or Donovan, or Peter, Paul & Mary, Ralph McTell songs, etc. I'm not saying that every song you do be a requested song but depending on how many songs you sing at the particular singaround (maybe one or two) would be nice to ask if anyone has a request they would like to hear from the list you brought.
Don't give up your singing. Even the biggest folk or rock stars have been criticized or not been given any feedback at some point in their career.
Perhaps if you have a close friend that you trust completely 100% to listen to you in at one of the singarounds and give you their feedback (in private) as to how you can improve or comment to you (in private) what advice they might have to help you.
