Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Farthest Field (David Dodson)
This song is a real treat for the ears. I've enjoyed it every time I've listened to the Harbors of Home CD, but this is the first time I've really paid attention to it. I'm wondering how to work it up for solo singing, getting the audience to do the echo/response.
Call-and-response songs can fall flat if you can't get the responders to respond. I think this one might be that way, that you might not be able to get an audience to sing the response without a lot of practice first.
Anybody have experience singing this without practicing with the responders first?
