I see from my copies of the FOAOTMAD News that Carl Jones and Bev Smith have been teaching singing workshops whenever they come over, so I suspect that we'll be asked to do one or more sessions on singing. Kellie and I have adopted Ginny Hawker's advice and renamed it the "Price is Right" rule: sing the song in as high a key as you can without going over (the top).
Geoff-- looking forward to meeting you and swapping some songs-- bet we have a lot in common. When in a big jam I look for songs from Macon, Poole, Carter Family and the Skillet Lickers that have good choruses. The O'Tones learned on our last trip that we can even do songs with pretty complicated choruses-- we had the whole of the Bodmin Folk Club singing "Home by the Sea" on the second time through.
