Thread Name: Folk music in community/day centres
Subject: RE: Folk music in community/day centres
Plenty of it going on up here in Scotland: we get regular requests to go and play Day Centres, Dementia groups, Senior Citizens clubs and Care Homes and the like. Repertoire usually includes mainly, but not exclusively, Scottish tunes and songs: the latter may not all strictly be "folk" or traditional but the songs the participants will hopefully know: Skye Boat Song, Westering Home, from Burns, Matt McGinn, Corries' back-catalogue, Adam McNaughtan and numerous others.
